Haws and Ainge are the only Cougars to reach 1,000 career points as sophomores.


The number of players in the NCAA ranked in the top 100 in the country in rebounds, assists and steals in 2013-14: Kyle Collinsworth and UCLA’s Kyle Anderson. Collinsworth averaged 8.1 boards, 4.6 assists and 1.7 steals to rank 86th, 83rd and 89th in each category, respectively.


The number of conference players of the year for BYU since Dave Rose became head coach in 2005. Keena Young (2007), Lee Cummard (2008) and Jimmer Fredette all earned Mountain West Conference Player of the Year honors. Tyler Haws became BYU’s first West Coast Conference Player of the Year in 2014.


The number of times a player in the West Coast Conference has scored 35 points or more in a single game since BYU joined the league in 2011. Five of the seven instances have been achieved by Tyler Haws: 42 vs. Virginia Tech on 12/29/12, 37 vs. Washington on 3/19/13, 35 vs. Pepperdine on 1/9/14, 48 at Portland on 1/23/14 and 38 vs. Pacific on 1/30/14.

Jake Toolson led the way with 15 points, Tyler Haws and Isaac Neilson added 13 apiece, Luke Worthington had 12 and Chase Fischer, Anson Winder and Dalton Nixon each had 10. It was the first time since Jan. 25, 1975 – and only the second time in program history – that seven players reached double digits. That night, Grig Clawson (16), Jay Cheesman (13), Mark Handy (12), Troy Jones (12), Brian Frishman (10), Greg Snow (10) and Veryl Law (10) led the Cougars to a 96-78 win at New Mexico.

Including an at-large bid to the 2014 NCAA Tournament, BYU has reached the postseason in nine-straight years under BYU coach Dave Rose. In his first season on the job, he took the Cougars to the 2006 NIT.  That was followed by six-straight trips to the NCAA tournament (2007 to 2012) and a bid to the 2013 NIT.
