Haws named WCC, SI.com, NBC Sports Player of the Week – Dec. 31, 2012
Tyler Haws was named the player of the week by the WCC, SI.com and NBC Sports after leading BYU to a 2-0 record with wins over Northern Arizona (84-54) and Virginia Tech (97-71). Haws averaged 28.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals while shooting .543 (19-35) from the field, .750 (9-12) from three and .909 (10-11) from the free throw line. Haws had a monster performance against the Hokies, scoring a career-high 42 points. Haws’ effort marked the single-highest scoring output by a Division I player so far this season.
BYU played its best defensive game of the season against LMU, limiting the Lions to 51 points and 30.8 percent shooting — both season bests for the Cougars. The first half was BYU’s best defensive half as the Cougars limited LMU to 20 points and 23.5 percent shooting. BYU’s 57 second half points are the most scored by the Cougars in a half all season, toping the 56 scored against Virginia Tech in the first half.
The Cougars have scored 90-plus in consecutive games (97 vs. Virginia Tech and 92 vs. LMU) for the first time since scoring 92 and 90 against Longwood and Prairie View A&M to open the 2011-12 season.
Tyler Haws hit 10 of 10 from the free throw line vs. Weber State, his third game this season shooting 100 percent from the line while attempting at least 10 free throws. Haws has four such games in his career, tied for the most in BYU history with Jimmer Fredette. Haws is tied with Russell Larson (1993-94) and Roberts (1994-95) for most perfect days from the line (minimum of 10 attempts) in a season with three. Danny Ainge, Lee Cummard, Larson and Roberts are tied for second on the career list with three.
Haws’s big day
- Most points scored by a BYU sophomore
- Tied for eighth-most points scored by an individual in BYU history
- Most points scored by a BYU player not named Jimmer Fredette since 1961 (Bob Skousen, 47 vs. UCLA)
- Most points scored by an individual in NCAA Division I men’s basketball this season
- Gives BYU a father-son duo in the 40-point club (Haws’s father Marty scored 40 vs. Siena in 1989)
Haws the closer
Davies does it all
BYU head coach Dave Rose has led BYU to its most successful eight-year run since taking over in 2005. His career record of 196-58 ranks him second in BYU history in total victories and first in winning percentage (.772). Rose has been named conference coach of the year three times, district coach of the year twice and has guided the Cougars to four conference titles, six NCAA Tournament appearances and six 25-win seasons. In 2010 he led BYU to its first NCAA Tournament win in 17 years and the Cougars have also won at least one tournament game in the two seasons since, including a trip to the Sweet 16 in 2011.
