Division III sophomore guard, Jack Taylor, scored a record-breaking 138 points (52-108 FGA-M) Tuesday night, leading Grinnell College to a 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible. The Wisconsin native, who drained 27 3′s (27-71 3PM-A) and shot every 20 seconds during the memorable performance, wowed many NBA players around the league:
“It’s unbelievable, honestly. I would like to see the game. I want to see the game…I watched Kobe’s game when he had 81. I watched some of the greatest games ever played when guys scored big numbers. There’s two games that I would love to see: One was Wilt, when he had 100, and this kid, I want to see him too. Sir Jack.”
“Wow. That’s impressive. That’s crazy. I don’t care what level you’re at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane.. How many 3s did he shoot?” When told it was 71, Bryant said, “Holy s—. How many points did they score as a team?” Told 179, and that no other Grinnell starter scored in double figures, Bryant said, “That’s incredible…(Taylor) must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball that much,” Bryant said.
“I never heard of nothing like that. That’s like a video game..How can you shoot 100 times, though?” He joked that from now on when someone asks if he’s taking too many shots, he’ll mention “that someone shot it 108 times.”
“His elbow has got to be sore.”
