138-Point Player Held to 21 in Next Game
Last Tuesday, Jack Taylor was the talk of the basketball world when he scored an NCAA record 138 points for Division III Grinnell (IA) College — on 52-of-108 shooting (27-of-71 from three) — in a 179–104 win over Faith Baptist Bible.
It didn’t take long for Taylor to come back to earth. The 5-foot-10 sophomore from Wisconsin was held to just 21 points (6 for 21 from the field) as his team fell to William Penn University on Sunday, 131-116.
While Taylor was upset at the loss (along with the rest of his team), he’s appreciative of the humbling after his record-breaking performance.
“To play a team like that was definitely sobering,” he told reporters after the William Penn game. “I got to keep improving my game.”
Hopefully that doesn’t mean he’s gunning for 139 points.
