Welcome back Tyler Haws

Tyler Haws scored 22 points vs. Tennessee State, his first game since serving a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Philippines. He followed that with another 22-point game against Georgia State and 23 points vs. Florida State. The three games mark his 22nd, 23rd and 24th career games scoring in double figures and fifth, sixth and seventh 20-point games. As a freshman in 2009-10 he averaged 11.3 points and 4.2 rebounds while shooting .498 from the field, .368 from three and .917 from the free throw line.

Davies does it all

Brandon Davies stuffed the stat sheet in the opener against Tennessee State, tallying 16 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 blocks and 2 steals while drawing 3 charges. He did it again vs. Georgia State with 28 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 2 steals. Through three games he is averaging 21.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals, 3.0 blocks and 1.3 steals. Last season he became the second Cougar in history to average at least one of everything (points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks). Russell Larson is the only other BYU player to produce a ‘one of everything’ season and did so twice, in 1993-94 and 1994-95 (blocks and steals were not tracked until the 1977-78 season).
