  1. College Basketball Player Scores His Second Century

    Only three players have broken the 100-point barrier in NCAA men’s basketball history. Jack Taylor, a guard for Grinnell College, is the only player to have done it twice. On Sunday night, he notched 109 points in a Division Three game against Crossroads College, following his 138-point record-breaker last year. Not everyone is impressed. Grinnell’s strategy of sending almost every ball Taylor’s way is berated by some, who argue it’s merely designed to break records and garner media attention. It’s certainly a great gig for Taylor, but it can’t be much fun for his teammates.
