Dick Vitale and Gus Johnson might have run out of things to say about Jack Taylor of Division III school Grinnell College, who rewrote the NCAA record book by scoring 138 points in his team's 179-104 win over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday night in Iowa. Twitter and SportsNation were buzzing over the feat and some of the jaw-dropping statistics connected to Taylor's night, including his 108 shots and zero assists, and the 70 points Faith Baptist Bible's David Larson scored on 34-for-44 shooting.
