Howard S."That massive one game BYU advantage is..."Obviously, you're completely clueless about tourney history for the
past 8 seasons. Study a little more and get back to us when you have a cogent
Let's be somewhat realistic here friends. No team can hope to win with
only 2 1/2 players scoring in double figures game after game. WE know Haws is
good for his average every game. (37 pts vs UW) We know EITHER Davies or
Carlino will get double figures as well. Find one more player who scores in
double figures EVER. We are not deep at all when it comes to scoring .
My Gosh Brother Haws would average 30 pts a game but those dang refs hate us
because we are so good!!
@LoneStarRunnerTwice as many? Sounds impressive.That
massive one game BYU advantage is the result of that Tourny run when BYU failed
to advance out of the sweet sixteen despite having the the national player of
the year.Well... at least Haws won't have to worry about deep
Tourny runs that occupy most of his March schedules.
Howard S"every other player cited made the Big Dance, Haws
didn't."LOL at a jealous Utah troll throwing around NCAA
tournament smack. When was the last time the Utes won an NCAA tourney game?As a sophomore, Haws has already played in twice as many NCAA tournament
games as the Utes have in the last 8 seasons combined.
I don't know about the uppercuts to the ribs but I do know that in the Utah
game, Tyler was literally taken down on the first two BYU offensive possessions
without a foul being called and that set the tone for the night and the rest of
the season for teams to play him very aggressively on defense to try to take his
game away from him. I have talked with Tyler about this and he freely admits
that he was beaten up pretty good by the end of the conference season.
Nevertheless, he was still the leading scorer in the WCC and number 10 in the
country. His future and BYU's future look very, very bright!
"In one game this season, the guy guarding him kept giving him uppercuts to
the ribs whenever he could sneak them in."Really Dick?
Really?You, really believe that Haws was punched repeatedly and the
Cougar Nation didn't whine about it incessantly.You really
believe that Haws was punched repeatedly and the offending player hasn't
been reviled endlessly on the Cougar message boards?One question...
which game? You don't even need to call out the offending player. Just say which game so the tapes can be reviewed and the veracity of
your claim can be verified.Otherwise, I'll just be left to
conclude, yet again, that if it weren't for made up facts the Cougar Nation
would have no facts at all.
"And so it does with BYU’s Haws in a different way."Different way indeed... every other player cited made the Big Dance, Haws

What kind of name is "Haws"?
The only way to defend Haws is to knock him around and the refs allow it. If the
refs call the fouls, Haws scores from the foul line. The only way defenders can
stop Haws is if the refs don't call fouls.
He is a great player and scorer and is only a sophomore. He has a tremendous
future. One correction is needed for this article, however. Tyler
tied Jimmer's 20+ point output from his junior year with 22. Jimmer had
over 30 games his senior year where he scored 20+ points.
SLS has it right. BYU must have Carlino playing a real, top, high caliber game,
and if Davies plays dumb and spends the first half on the bench, BYU is done.
Klay Thompson (not Tompson), is in his second year with the Golden State
Warriors. Did he come back to play a game with his old college teammates
against the old in-state rivals? Come on Dick! Poor reporting aside, Haws is a
Haws is the man. Little sister up north wishes they had a scorer half as good as
The word is out. I wish it weren't. Washington had barely two days to
prepare for BYU and couldn't come up with anything to harass Haws the way
that WCC opponents did. But Mercer has plenty of time to get ready for round 2
in Provo. I'm nervous about what they will do to Haws. I hope he has
another 37-point night in him.
Truly a gifted player. Next year should be fun to watch. If Carlino can get
his act together and BYU can get a gifted big man they would be much improved.
The future looks bright for BYU basketball for many years.
