GRINNELL, Iowa (AP) — The small Iowa school that produced 138-point scorer Jack Taylor has set another NCAA record. Division Three Grinnell College player Patrick Maher broke the NCAA record with 37 assists Monday night in a 164-144 victory over College of Faith.

Maher snapped the record of 34 set by Grinnell assistant head coach David Arseneault back in 2007. Maher also had 19 points to help the Pioneers improve to 8-2. Taylor put Grinnell on the national map with 138 points against Faith Baptist Bible on November 20th, 2012. Taylor didn’t play Monday night because of a lower back injury.
