Scoring 100 games in a single game, is something that was done only once in the NBA game, and it was none other than Wilt Chamberlain who did it. On different levels of organized basketball, it has been done, and just recently, JJ Culver of the Wayland Baptist University became the second player NAIA history to score at least 100 points in a game.

Culver's older brother Jarret Culver is an NBA player for the Minnesota Timberwolves, and even he didn't achieve something similar in his college career playing for Texas Tech. J.J. Culver's and his team won that game against the Southwestern Adventist University 124-60 and Culver said it felt like a dream come true for him.

"Definitely a dream come true. I put in a lot of work for this. I love playing basketball, and thanks to everyone for the support."

Culver scored the team's first 42 points and finished the half with 51 points and broke a record for the most points scored in school's history. Culver played 38 minutes, made 34 out of 62 shots. He made 12 of 33 from the three-point range and 20 of 27 at the free-throw line. Wayland's head coach Ty Harrelson said the team believed him and wanted him to score as many points as he could. 

"The guys realized he was hot and kept going to him. We figured as long as he's taking good shots and shots out of our philosophy that he had a chance to do something special tonight. "I've coached him really hard for four years, so I'm happy for him and proud of him. It couldn't happen to a nicer kid and a harder worker."

Even though Culver scored 100 points in a game, the NAIA record is still 113 points set by Clarence Francis in 1954. The NCAA is a whole different story, and the record there was set by Jack Taylor, who had 138 points in a Division III game.
