Nothing but net.
138 points in one basketball game. And that’s not even the final score -- we’re talking 138 points for ONE player!
WXIX has more about Grinnell College’s Jack Taylor and his record-breaking night.

“Jack Taylor of Grinnell College in Iowa put up 108 shots including 71 three pointers. Maybe even more unbelievable than his point total is the fact he only played 35 minutes.”

If you do the math, that’s four points a minute.
Pretty good for a 5 foot 10, 170-pound sophomore whose previous personal best was 48 points in a high school game.
HLN puts Tuesday’s record into perspective.

“Jack had 58 points in the first half. What a slacker because he came out and scored 80 points in the second half. That’s one point off Kobe Bryant’s modern day NBA record.”

When Taylor’s teammates noticed he wasn’t missing many shots, they devised a plan.
Here’s ABC.

“At halftime when I had 58, they wanted to get me the ball in the second half to see if I could keep it going. I’m lucky to have the teammates that I have. They are very unselfish.”
 
Taylor obliterated the previous NCAA scoring record from 1954 of 113 points in a game.
A player on the opposing team dropped 70 points in what would ordinarily be the memorable stat.

And while it probably goes without saying - Taylor’s team won the game, 179 to 104.
