It was lights out for Grinnell College (Iowa) guard Jack Taylor Tuesday night. He scored 138 points in a 179-104 Division III victory over Faith Baptist Bible, setting a new NCAA record at Darby Gymnasium.

Taylor -- who took a shot every 20 seconds -- had 58 points at halftime.

He had 70 points in the losing effort, which makes for an ultra-rare box score.

What did it look like? Here's a YouTube video of the final minutes:

Grinnell College is in Grinnell, Iowa, east of Des Moines.
