Jack Taylor of Grinnell College had us all fooled last year when he set the NCAA record for points in a game with 138.  Half of the NBA was tweeting about him when they heard about his performance.  Durant said the underage player deserved a shot of Jack Daniels and LeBron said it’s on the top of his list of games he wishes he could see.  Then, we all finally saw the 1 hour and 40 minute “game” (below) or the highlights of it and felt cheated, bamboozled and hornswoggled.

Well, Jack is back and the 5’10 Taylor scored 109 points today in a 173-123 victory.  More ridiculous than the 109 points is that it only took him 29 minutes.  More ridiculous than the 29 minutes is the 53 points he scored in 9 minutes of the second half.  More ridiculous than that is he made 24 of 48 3-pointers.  More ridiculous than that is I’m still giving you more ridiculous stats such as the fact that he’s coming off a 71 point game which was the Pioneer’s season opener.  That means this kid is averaging a ridiculous 90 points for the season so far!

“Just like last year, I couldn’t have done this without my teammates,” Taylor said. “I give so much credit to them. This truly was a team effort. I’m thankful for the program and the people I have playing with me.”

“I don’t know if 138 is possible again but I think it shows people that I can score with the basketball — that it wasn’t just a one-time fluke last year.”

He’s right it’s not a fluke.  It’s becoming a trend and that’s just ridic…whatever let’s just end the article about Jack and Grinnell with that sound.
