 By the numbers

1.7 Matt Carlino’s career steals average, second all-time in BYU history. His 128 career steals are 11th all-time and the 64 he totaled in 2012-13 as a sophomore are the fourth most in team history.
2 The number of players in BYU history to reach 1,000 career points as a sophomore. Danny Ainge was the first to do so and had 1,130 points in 57 games by the end of his sophomore season (1978-79). Sophomore Tyler Haws joined Ainge when he reached the 1,000 career point mark at Saint Mary’s on Feb. 21, 2013.
3 The number of players with double-doubles against North Texas: Matt Carlino (10 rebounds, 11 assists), Eric Mika (17 points, 11 rebounds), Nate Austin (10 points, 13 rebounds). It was the first time since March 15, 1984, that BYU had three players with double-doubles in a single game.
4.7 Matt Carlino’s career assist average, second all-time in BYU history.  As a freshman in 2011-12, he averaged 4.6 assists and in 2012-13, he averaged 4.8. His 171 assists last season are the third most in team history. Carlino is averaging 4.5 assists per game this season and tied his career high with 11 against North Texas.
6 The number of career games for Tyler Haws shooting 100 percent from the free throw line with a minimum of 10 attempts, a BYU record. He hit 10 of 10 on Feb. 20, 2010 at Wyoming, 12 of 12 vs. Cal State Northridge on Nov. 24, 2012, 10 of 10 vs. Utah on Dec. 8, 2012, 10 of 10 at Weber State on Dec. 15, 2012, 14 of 14 at Loyola Marymount on March 2, 2013 and 11 of 11 vs. Wichita State on Nov. 26, 2013.
8 With a bid to the 2013 NIT, Dave Rose and the Cougars reached the postseason for a BYU record eighth-straight season. In his first year as head coach, Rose and the Cougars went to the 2006 NIT. That was followed by six-straight trips to the NCAA Tournament and last season’s NIT bid. BYU has also won 20-plus games in each of Rose’s eight seasons.
28 The number of consecutive games Tyler Haws has scored in double figures, a career-best streak.
38 The number of 20-point games Haws has in his career at BYU, tied for fifth all-time in team history with Kresimir Cosic. He had 25 20-point games in 2012-13, fourth all-time in a single season.
83.3 BYU’s 3-point percentage against Texas (10 of 12), a BYU single-game record (minimum 10 3-pointers attempted). Matt Carlino hit 5 of 7, Frank Bartley IV hit 3 of 3 and Tyler Haws hit 2 of 2. 
88.6 Tyler Haws’ career free-throw percentage, first all-time in BYU history. He has hit 379 of 428 from the line in his career.
90.0 Eric Mika’s shooting percentage against Mount St. Mary’s, tied for the BYU freshman record for field goal percentage in a game (minimum 10 attempts). The freshman from Alpine, Utah, hit 9 of 10 from the field and scored 20 points. He shares the record with Fred Roberts, who also hit 9 of 10 vs. Utah State on Dec. 6, 1978.
112 BYU’s point total against Stanford, a 112-103 road win. The point total is the most by a BYU team under Dave Rose and the most since Feb. 25, 1993, when the Cougars scored 128 at home against Sacramento State. It also marked a BYU record for points scored against a Pac-12 team.
217 Dave Rose (2005 to present) is second all-time in BYU basketball history with 217 career victories, behind only the great Stan Watts, who coached the Cougars to 371 wins from 1949 to 1972 and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1986.
1,463 The number of points Tyler Haws has scored in his career, good for 16th all-time and 31 from tying Joe Nelson for 15th. Haws holds the BYU record for most points scored during freshman and sophomore seasons combined. With 942 career points, Matt Carlino is on pace to become the next BYU player to reach 1,000 career points.
