Liberty commit DJ Moore helped lead his Worthington Christian High School team to the Division III state championship game in Ohio. The 6’2″, 170 pound point guard would score a game-high 28 points in the title game, but his team would fall to Lutheran East, 61-56.
Moore, a 3-star rated prospect according to 247Sports, committed to the Flames last summer over offers from Ohio and Miami (OH). Earlier this season, he surpassed the 1,000 point mark for his high school career. Moore and Worthington Christian finish the 2020-21 season at 27-2.
The Columbus, Ohio native averaged 15.3 points per game as a sophomore a year ago and was named first team all-state while helping the Warriors reach the district finals. As a freshman, Moore was named Mid-State League Ohio Division’s Player of the Year and also earned first-team all-state honors on the football field as a wide receiver.
Their nearly perfect season came to an end Sunday afternoon in Dayton Arena when Cleveland Heights Lutheran East was able to claim the state title. Lutheran East are a seasoned program as they made their fourth straight tournament and second straight state championship appearance. They have a roster which starts five seniors, all of which have received college scholarship offers.
Moore hit the game-winning shot in Friday’s state semifinal game and scored 12 of his 28 points in the fourth quarter in Sunday’s title game. He made four of five field goals to go along with three assists and three steals in the final period.
