138 points!

Grinnell College has been known to put lots of points on the board in basketball games over the years. The Division III school's "five-in, five out" run-and-gun style helps the team score over 100 points a game on a nightly basis.

Grinnell defeated Faith Baptist 179-104 on Tuesday night, but it was Jack Taylor's night that made history.
Taylor scored 138 points Tuesday against Faith Baptist to set an NCAA single-game scoring record.

Taylor made 52 of 108 shots from the field, including 27 of 71 from 3-point range. He made 7 of 10 free throws.

The previous NCAA record was held by Clarence "Bevo" Francis, who scored 113 points in a 1954 game for Division II Rio Grande.
