WELLSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man says he wishes good luck to the basketball player from Iowa's Grinnell College who broke his decades-old NCAA record for most points in a game.
Sophomore Jack Taylor scored 138 points in Division III Grinnell's 179-104 victory over Faith Baptist Bible on Tuesday. That shattered the record set by Rio Grande's Bevo Francis, who had 113 points against Hillsdale in 1954.
Francis now lives near Wellsville in far eastern Ohio. He tells WTOV-TV records are made to be broken and he's surprised at how long his record lasted.
Francis says there was no 3-point shot when he played, making it tougher to score so many points.
Taylor made 27 of 71 attempts from behind the arc as he shot his way into the record books.
