Last week, Jack Taylor, a sophomore guard on Grinnell College, scored a whopping 138 points in a 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible College in Grinnell, Iowa in a men’s collegiate basketball game. Taylor set numerous NCAA records, including most points scored in a game (138), most field goals made in a game (52), and most three-pointers made in a game (27). Taylor has received seemingly nothing but praise and adulation - from countless news articles featuring quotes from NBA players to a live interview on Sportscenter.
