You have probably never heard of Grinnell college. You have never heard of Jack Taylor. You probably never thought you would hear about a player scoring 100 points again which is what Grinnell’s Jack Taylor did last night along with 38 additional points.
More ridiculous than the fact that he scored more points than just about every basketball team this week that didn’t play OT games is the stat line that includes 108 field goal attempts and 71 of those were 3 point attempts. Now that 138 isn’t sounding as impressive because if you can do elementary math than you know that he missed atleast half of his shots. How about 52 of 108 and 27 of 71. Forgot to mention he also added 7 free throws so he only scored 131 of those points off field goals.
Before you start calling Jack the jacker a ball hog, realize his team did score 41 of the total 179 points against Faith Baptist Bible (insert your own joke here about the team name) but no other teammate did attempt over 6 shots.
There’s not a whole lot more that can be said about this mind boggling game so let’s just watch some tape and hear what some others including Jack Taylor himslef and Kevin Durant had to say about this Wilt but not so Wilt like game (Wilt would of scored over 150 if he attempted over 100 field goals and that’s without any 3 ponters).
