Jack Taylor stands 5-10 and plays Division III basketball in Iowa. But the Grinnell College sophomore was the talk of the NBA for a night.
Taylor scored 138 points to set an NCAA record in a 178-104 win Tuesday night against Faith Baptist Bible College. He shot 52-for-108 from the field and 27-for-71 on three-pointers. And the world’s best basketball players took notice in a mix of disbelief and envy.
“He must have been wearing the Mambas, man,” said Kobe Bryant, referring to the shoes named after his “Black Mamba nickname. “Only Mambas have no conscience to shoot the ball that much.”
Little do we know there was a kid on the other team that scored 70 points and was 34-44 from the field. Way more impressive in my opinion. You take that many shots you should have over 160! Hit this link to see all the NBA Twitter Reactions…
