Jack Taylor of Division III Grinnell College had the kind of stat line you usually only see on video games. The 5-10, 170-pound guard shot the ball 108 times, making 52 of those. He was 27-of-71 from 3-point range, and 7-of-10 from the free-throw line. He finished the game with an incredible 138 points to lead his team to a 179-104 win Tuesday night against Faith Baptist Bible College.
No one else on Jack's team took more than 6 shots.
The 138 points broke the old NCAA record 113 points set by Clarence "Bevo" Francis who scored 113 points for Rio Grande College of Ohio vs. Hillside in 1954 according to USA Today.
Jack said he didn't realize what kind of night he was having until halftime.
"I thought I had around 30 points," Taylor said. "And (then) coach came in and said I had 58. That started to make me realize that it could be a special night."
NBA players took notice of the performance. Check out what some of them had to say:
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant: "Jack Taylor you deserve a shot of Jack Daniels after that performance lol...wow"
Retired forward Donyell Marshall: "This is crazy. Hope he iced his arms after game."
Atlanta Hawks forward Anthony Tolliver: "This dude now averages 61ppg after that #138pointsin1game performance hahaha"
Phoenix Suns point guard Kendall Marshall: "Hollllll up, kid on the other team was 34-44 and had 70. WAY more impressive!"
Former Sacramento Kings forward Donte Greene: "GIRL: how u do babe? BOY: had 70 but we lost GIRL: aw sorry wat happen? BOY: dude had 138 on da other team!! "

Thunder center Cole Aldrich: "138 points is impressive but I think shooting 108 times (71 3 pointers) is more impressive. #throwemup"
L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant joked that Jack must have been wearing his brand of sneakers.
"That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at, you score 138 points it's pretty insane," Bryant said. "He must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball that much. You gotta be in shape. And you gotta have a little Mamba blood in you."
