Dallas Morning News: Lions’ Moutry Named Player of the Week

McKinney High senior guard AJ Moutry was named DFW’s Boys Basketball Player of the Week by the Dallas Morning News on Monday.

That’s because Moutry put in a 54-point offensive explosion on Friday night in the Lions’ double-overtime win over Richardson Pearce. MHS head coach Wes Watson told TSB in an email that the effort is believed to be a school record for points.

During the game, the 6-foot-1 Moutry made nine 3-pointers, grabbed eight rebounds and recorded four steals. He never came out of the game.

With time winding down and the score knotted at 94-94, Moutry drove to the right of the lane and hit a tough fade away jumper as he absorbed contact from a Pearce defender. AJ would also hit the ensuing free throw to give the Lions the hard fought 97-94 victory.

In case you wondered, the shooting line for Moutry looked like this: 19-for-29 from the field.

Moutry averages 26.5 points per game this year.

And that wasn’t his only good game last week. Moutry, easily the leading candidate for District 10-4A Player of the Year once this season is over, scored 27 points in another double-overtime win on Tuesday — that one over crosstown rival McKinney North.

Moutry’s previous scoring high was 38 points.

His recruitment is open, and he has not committed to a university for next season.
