No, that headline is not a typo.
Jack Taylor, a guard for Division III Grinnell College, shattered the NCAA single-game scoring mark last night by dropping 138 points on Faith Baptist Bible in a 179-104 victory.
Among the mind-boggling numbers associated with the feat:
- Taylor took 108 shots, one every 20 seconds he was on the court.
- He was 27 of 71 on three-pointers.
- He only played 36 of a possible 40 minutes.
The accomplishment earned praise and amazement from those around the basketball spectrum, including a certain Lakers shooting guard who knows a thing or two about making buckets.
"That's crazy, man. I don't care what level you're at," Kobe Bryant said when told of the 138 points.
Expect him to try for 139 next game.
