Make-and-break year


Jack Taylor, who set the NCAA scoring record with 138 points in a game in November, is out for the season after breaking his wrist. Grinnell College spokesman Ted Schultz said Taylor fractured the radius on his shooting arm during a 119-117 win over rival Cornell (Iowa) on Wednesday. Taylor will likely have surgery within a week and be out 2-3 months, costing the sensational sophomore the rest of the season. He was averaging 36.3 points for the Division III Pioneers (9-3). “Thanks for all the support and well wishes!” he tweeted Thursday. Taylor captured the attention of the basketball world when he dropped 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible College in a 179-104 win on Nov. 21, shattering the previous mark by 25 points. – Associated Press
