Mike Hlas, CR Gazette –
We in Iowa know what kind of offensive madness has been created by the men’s basketball teams of Grinnell College over the years.
But Tuesday night … oh my!
Jack Taylor, a 5-foot-10 sophomore from Black River Falls, Wis., scored an NCAA-record 138 points for the Pioneers in their 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible.
Taylor made just 6 of 34 threes over his first two games. But Tuesday, he popped in 27 of 71 threes (what? WHAT?) and was 52-of-108 from the field overall. He also made seven free throws.

Minutes later, the play-by-play announcer said “He’s unconscious! I believe he’s blacking out right now!”
Taylor also broke the NCAA record for 3-pointers in a game.
Grinnell is 3-0. It won its first two games by the scores of 130-101 and 111-100. Tame stuff by Pioneers standards.
Taylor was an icy 6-of-34 from 3-point range and 11-41 overall before he went cuckoo Tuesday.
