Jack Taylor by Michael J







On Tuesday, November 20, Jack Taylor dropped a new record amount of points; with 138! Taylor is a player for Grinnell, a division III team in Iowa. Bevo Francis of Rio Grande had the NCAA scoring record with 113 points 1954. In 1953, he also had 116 in a different game. Frank Selvy was the first to reach triple figures with 100 in 1954. The thing is Taylor is only 5 foot 10 and weighs 170 pounds. In the game he was 52-108 for field goals, 27-71 for 3-pointers, and 7-10 for free throws, an undersized basketball player. He broke the previous Grinnell record of  89. He had three rebounds, three steals and no assists. Grinnell went on to win 179 to 104 over Faith Baptist, but the surprising the thing was David Larson of Faith Baptist scored 70 points. In the NBA, the most points scored in a game was 100 by Wilt Chamberlan. Taylor got a little bit of a bad rap because Hepplewhite were saying he was a ball hog, but he said that his teammates were trying to get him the ball because they knew he had a chance at the record.

Basketball by Shaylen







Basketball is one of my favorite sports! I am not the best at it but I enjoy it very much. My favorite college basketball team is the North Carolina Tar Heels! I go to every game with my mom and dad. Some of the fundamentals of the game are if you knock someone down while they are up in the air that maybe a foul if the ref sees it. If they make the shot while being fouled they will shoot one free throw at the free throw line. If they miss the shot in the air they get to shoot two free throw shots in the air. One other rule is you can’t trip someone on purpose or it will be a technical foul which means the get to shoot the ball two times and get the ball back after that no matter what.

I Am Proud of the Time We Won the Championship by Michael S

I am proud of winning the championship in basketball. We went undefeated in the preseason and were the preseason champions. Next we had the real championship. We won our first playoff game, we knocked the team out of the playoffs. Our next game was against a good team. I told my friend Shaffer we have a big game today. We had a player who was not going to be there which was one of our best players. It was a tough game but we won. We made it to the championship. It was against one of my friends, Ben M’s, team. It came down to the last second but we won the championship and I was so proud of myself.
