GRINNELL, Iowa - Wisconsin native Jack Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III Grinnell's 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night.
Taylor, a 5 foot 10 inch sophomore from Black River Falls, Wisconsin, made 27 of 71 three-point attempts, was 52 of 108 overall from the field and added seven free throws on 10 attempts in 36 minutes.
Rio Grande's Bevo Francis held the NCAA scoring record with 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954. Griffin Lentsch previously held the Grinnell mark, scoring 89 against Principia last season.
Los Angeles Lakers' star Kobe Bryant is among those noting Taylor's scoring feat on social media, calling it "pretty insane."
Other NBA players are reacting, too. Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks says it's "like a video game" and teammate Raymond Felton says Taylor's elbow "has got to be sore."
