Jack Taylor, a sophomore guard for Grinnell, scored 138 points tonight in the Pioneers' 179-104 pasting of Faith Baptist Bible. Taylor shot 52-for-108 from the floor, 27-for-71 from three-point range and 7-for-10 from the line to knock Rio Grande's Bevo Francis and his 113 points, from the record book.
Taylor has scored 185 points in the Pioneers' three games.
Bevo Francis held both the NCAA and collegiate scoring mark, with his 113 points vs. Hillsdale in 1954 and 116 points as an NAIA competitor in a game the year before.
The record comes one year and one day after Grinnell's Griffin Lentsch set the Division III men's basketball single-game scoring record, as he scored 89 points in a 145-97 rout of Principia. Lentsch scored seven tonight.
David Larson scored 70 points for Faith Baptist.
