HOUSTON - Another night and another big performance by LJ Cryer.
The Baylor-signee has been putting up monster numbers all season, and really his entire career, and if you put enough of those nights together they begin to add up.
On Tuesday, Cryer scored 32 points, going 14 of 19 from the field and 3 of 7 from three-point range, for the Mavericks, which sent him over the 3,000-point mark for his illustrious high school career.
"It's a great achievement because I worked really hard for this," Cryer told VYPE. "But, I'm more focused on helping my team win games."
