Although Lavar was small in stature and never saw much action in high school until late in his senior year, he became one of the most dramatic players ever to play for BYU as well as one of its most exciting to watch. His greatest ability was that of "stealing" the ball from the opposition and dribbling down the floor for game saving baskets in the final seconds. He used to drive Cougar opponents crazy with these tactics.
