With Talor getting his fifth 30 pointer yesterday, I thought I’d check to see where he stood on the all-time list. He’s now just one behind Joe Crispin’s six 30 pointers but a country mile behind Jesse Arnelle’s fifteen. :o
Around the country this season, there have been exactly 100 30 point performances, including two other Big Ten players, E’Twuan Moore against Southern Illinois and John Shurma against Northern Illinois, both of whom matched Talor’s 31 points. JaJuan Johnson, Jon Leuer, and Kalin Lucas all came up a point short with 29 point games.
Moore and Battle are both tied for the conference scoring lead at 20.2 and Talor is almost right on pace to catch Jesse Arnelle’s alltime scoring record. If Talor only plays 30 games (29 regular season and 1 BTT game) and continues scoring at his current pace, he will wind up with 2133 pts, five short of Arnelle’s record 2138. Needless to say, postseason play could provide a big help toward getting Talor the record.
He’s also in pursuit of another record. Arnelle holds the record for the most points+rebounds+assists at 3376. Talor sits at 2646 which is third. He should be a lock to catch Joe Crispin at 2841. Arnelle might be a different story however. At his current pace for the season Talor will come up about 100 short. He’s probably going to need a few post season games to catch Jesse for this record.
