PROVO, Utah – For the fourth time this season, BYU guards Kyle Collinsworth and Tyler Haws have been named to the same honors team, this time the Associated Press All-America Honorable Mention list.
Collinsworth and Haws led BYU to a 25-10 record and a trip to the NCAA tournament for the second-straight season. They were both named to the All-West Coast Conference First Team and received all-district accolades from the United States Basketball Writers Association and the National Association of Basketball Coaches. Collinsworth has also been named to the Lute Olson All-America Team.
This is the second-straight season Haws has earned AP All-America Honorable Mention. The senior guard out of Alpine, Utah, finished his senior season third in the nation and first in the WCC in scoring at 22.2 points per game while also averaging 4.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. He concludes his decorated career as BYU’s all-time scoring leader with 2,720 points.
Collinsworth, a native of Provo, Utah, proved to be one of the most versatile players in the country, setting the NCAA’s single-season triple-double record while tying the career record with six.
For the season, Collinsworth was second on the team in scoring at 13.8 points per game while leading the way in rebounding (8.7), assists (6.0) and steals (1.8) per game. He finished the 2014-15 season as the only player in the country ranked among the top 75 in rebounds, assists and steals.
