Cryer named to TABC all-state team

Posted

For the final act of what has been a storied high school career, Morton Ranch senior guard L.J. Cryer was named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches’ Class 6A all-state team this week.

Cryer produced one of the best seasons in Texas high school basketball history, scoring 1,164 points. The 6-foot-1 Baylor signee averaged 34.2 points, 5.3 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game. Cryer shot 55 percent overall, including 44 percent from 3-point range. He made 145 3-pointers, averaging 4.3 3s made per game.

Cryer scored 40 or more points 11 times this season, including a 50-point, 10-assist game in the regular season finale against Mayde Creek. He finished his career as the fifth-best all-time scorer in Texas high school boys basketball history, and No. 1 all-time in the Greater Houston area.

“I’ve been a scorer all my life,” Cryer told The Katy Times in an interview in February. “I didn’t know I’d be able to score the way I do now, but I put in the work. I feel it’s expected out of me.”

Cryer was one of 20 players named to the all-state team, and just one of six players from the Greater Houston area named to the team. The other five players were Klein Forest’s Daylan Hamilton, Fort Bend Travis’ Justin Hill, Summer Creek’s Javon Jackson, and Dickinson’s Tramon Mark and Marcus Williams.
