1) That's a truckload of turnovers. 16 for one guy, 15 for the other.
2) The opposing coach must have been cool with the whole thing. Not running down the clock, not triple teaming Taylor, having his own guy put up 70 points.
3) 20 man roster is nuts, compared to 10 for the losing team.
Having known the Grinnell system for years - I'm actually Facebook friends with two of their stars from about four years ago - the other team most likely wasn't cool with it. I can see the "not triple teaming Taylor" as an indication of being cool with it, but would you rather guarantee one guy not score or guarantee that the opposing team will score?
But as for "not running down the clock," that has to do with Grinnell, not his own team. They press and bring in a fresh batch of players every minute or so, so the pace is beyond hectic. They press you and come after you and don't give you time to think. I'd be amazed if they could hold the ball for even 15 seconds without getting the ball stolen, having a foul called, or getting a wide open shot.
