BYU basketball: Sophomore Tyler Haws eclipses 1,000-point mark for his career
MORAGA, Calif. — BYU's Tyler Haws joined elite company Thursday at McKeon Pavilion.
The guard from Alpine became just the second Cougar to reach the career 1,000-point plateau as a sophomore.
Haws entered the game against Saint Mary's needing nine points to reach the 1,000-point milestone. He scored eight points early in the first half, then didn't score again until the 15:32 mark of the second half with a jumper that gave him 1,001 career points.
Going into Tuesday's game, Haws had scored 594 points this season.
He scored 397 points as a freshman in 2009-10 before leaving for an LDS mission in the Philippines. Haws returned home from his mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints last spring.
At the end of his sophomore year, Ainge had scored 1,130 career points, recording 632 as a freshman and 498 as a sophomore. Ainge finished his career in 1981 with 2,467 points.
That stood as the school's all-time scoring record until 2011, when Jimmer Fredette eclipsed that mark by scoring 2,599. After his sophomore campaign, Fredette had scored 780 points.
