Sunday, November 25, 2012
GRINNELL, Iowa — Jack Taylor’s encore for his record-setting performance was OK, just nowhere near his previous game.
Taylor scored 21 points, but Grinnell College lost 131-116 to William Penn on Sunday night. He was 6-for-21 from the field, making 3-of-13 attempts from 3-point range, in the first loss of the season for the Pioneers (3-1).
Everyone from LeBron James to Carmelo Anthony was talking about Taylor after he scored 138 points on Tuesday night, shattering the NCAA record of 113 set by Rio Grande’s Bevo Francis against Hillsdale in 1954. He was 52-of-108 from the floor in the memorable performance, including 27-for-71 from 3-point range.
William Penn (12-0) was 50-of-80 from the floor and had seven players score in double figures.
