Grinnell College's Jack Taylor drops 138 points in a D-III basketball game (Video)

Before tonight, I would have believed that Wilt Chamberlain's 100 point game against the New York Knicks was an untouchable record.

That was until Grinnell's Jack Taylor demolished the record by dropping 138 points in a division three game against Faith Baptist Bible College.

The final score of 179-104 and here's the breakdown of his night by the folks over at USA Today:
Taylor, a 5-10, 170-pound guard from Black River Falls, Wisconsin, shot 52-of-108 from the field, 27-of-71 from 3-point range, and 7-of-10 from the free-throw line to finish with the historic, head-shaking line of 138 points.

"I don't think reality has really set in yet," Taylor said after the game. "I think it definitely will in the next few days. I can't really get my mind around it right now."
Below is a video of some of the highlights of the game:

In case you might have forgotten, Grinnell is famous for their up-tempo offense but still Taylor's 138 point night should not be discounted.
