College Player Goes off for 128 Points

 This image provided by Grinnell College shows Grinnell guard Jack Taylor (3) shooting one of 108 shots during Tuesday's Nov. 21, 2012, game against Faith Baptist Bible in Grinnell, Iowa. Taylor scored 138 points to shatter the NCAA scoring record in Division III.

Its the talk of all media outlets across the country this morning. Jack Taylor of Division 3 Grinnell College broke a 58 year old NCAA record by scoring 138 points in a single game.

Yup, that's not a typo 138 points.

Taylor, a Sophomore from Black Falls, Wisconsin took 108 shots in the game making 52 of them including 27 3-points. For those of you scoring at home, that is a 48% shooting percentage. As you can probably imagine in a performance like this -- he had 0 assists.

How does someone take 108 shots in a game? How terrible must that opposing defense be to allow one guy to take 108 shots? Double team, triple team...do something to interrupt that flow. It's baffling. Don't get me wrong, 138 points is impressive. Its never been done before. Good for him. But you can't help but scratch your head a wonder at what point does this performance shift from dominant to selfish?

Lost in a lot of this is a stat line for a player on the opposing team (Faith Baptist Bible's David Larson) who had a line of 34 for 44 (77%) for 70 points. At worst this has to be the best performance in a losing effort in NCAA history, right?
