GRINNELL, Iowa -- Jack Taylor renewed his membership in the Century Club.

Taylor scored 109 points for Division III Grinnell College on Sunday, shooting 24 of 48 from three-point range in a 173-123 win over Crossroads.

The 5-foot-10 guard from Black River Falls, Wis., set an NCAA record for any level by scoring 138 points last Nov. 20 in a 179-104 win over Faith Baptist Bible College.

“Just like last year, I couldn’t have done this without my teammates,” Taylor said. “I give so much credit to them. This truly was a team effort. I’m thankful for the program and the people I have playing with me.”


The only other player to score more than 109 in an NCAA game was Rio Grande’s Clarence “Bevo” Francis, who had 113 against Hillsdale in 1954.

Against Crossroads, Taylor was 35 of 70 overall from the field. He made 15 of 17 free throws.

Taylor scored 71 points in the Pioneers’ 144-99 victory Friday in the season opener against Finlandia.
