DIII Basketball player scores 138 points

a 5-foot-10, 170-pound sophomore from Black River Falls, Wis., made 27 of 71 3-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes.

To be fair, Taylor plays for Grinnell, which runs a variant of the offense that Paul Westhead ran at LMU in the early 90′s, except it's faster. They want to shoot as quickly as possible, they press full-court the entire game, and they make complete line changes every minute or so. Most importantly, if they're not shooting a three or a layup, they ain't shooting it.

It's a system that produces some crazy box scores. One year and one day ago, a Grinnell player set the D-III record for points at 89.

Taylor recently transferred to Grinnell, located about 50 miles east of Des Moines, after playing one season for Wisconsin-La Crosse. He struggled in his debut at the nearby Wartburg Tournament over the weekend by hitting only 11 of 41 shots - including only 6 of 34 3-point attempts Still, he averaged 23.5 points a game.

Taylor had 58 points at halftime. Then he got hot.

Taylor was 32 of 58 shooting - including 18 3s - in the final 20 minutes and averaged an astounding four points a minute in the second half.

i can't stand this kid. what an idiot. did his team even win the game?
Jack Taylor, of the Grinnell College Pioneers, scored 138 points in a game last night, against Faith Baptist Bible College. It's a mindblowing number, shattering the old NCAA mark of 113, and it's being trumpeted as one of sports' all-time individual achievements. It is not. It is b******t. It is just the latest incarnation of Grinnell's decades-old strategy of seeking media attention for records achieved through a complete b*****dization of basketball.
