I have read comments about this saying things such as, “Grinnell plays fake basketball and they never win, they aren’t even a real program,” and countless others of the like. I don’t care if this was a game of intramural or pickup basketball, this kid scored 138 points in only 36 minutes of play. Even if he hadn’t sat once in the game, this is still an astronomical number.

If you look at the box score, he had 58 points at the half. He was then 32 of 58 from the field in the second half, including 18 3s – in the final 20 minutes. All of the haters have to point out that he was 27 of 71 in overall 3-point attempts, but get the hell out of here. As if he didn’t make up for this by nailing 18 3s in the final 20 minutes of play. GTFO. Not to mention, he had more successful shots than most players even have attempts at all.

Final note: poor David Larson of Faith Baptist Bible scored an impressive 70 points in the game and has gone without recognition.
