scored what is believed to be a school-record 54 points while leading McKinney (Texas)
to a 97-94 double-overtime basketball victory against Pearce (Richardson, Texas). The score was deadlocked at 75 following the end of the fourth quarter.
The Lions, who have won eight of their last nine games, had beaten city rival North (McKinney, Texas) in another double-overtime thriller earlier in the week.
The 6-foot-1 senior guard, who raised his average to 26.5, drilled 19 of 29 shots from the floor - including 9 of 12 from 3-point range - and 7 of 11 from the free throw line during his career night. His previous high had been 38 points from earlier this season.
Coach Wes Watson told MaxPreps, "It's funny, because I had been saying for awhile that he was going to have a 40-point game this year and he went beyond that. Our style lends to that. We knew that if he really got hot, something like this was possible. He's such a dynamic player. He runs the floor well and finishes well around the basket with his left or right hand. He is very quick and can play either guard position. He has a high basketball IQ and is the total package."
Moutry is one of the state's most improved players after averaging just 12 points during his junior year. He carries a better than 3.0 grade point average and hopes to play college basketball at the Division I level.
