    Here's hoping he can do better than 1 and out in the wcc tournament next year.

    Keep up the good work Chris.

    Congrats to Haws. Seems like a good kid.

    What a cool story. Tyler Haws seems to be an all-around class act. Having watched him for many years, I've never seen him act like a punk ever. He competes hard, plays hard, and when the game is over, handles it with class, much like his dad. I hope T.J. can learn from both of these great examples, because they both did it the right way. What a cool experience Tyler is going to have. Congratulations to you, and the whole Haws family.

    Way to go Tyler!

    You make us proud to be Cougar fans. You are only getting better and better and if you keep it up you have a shot to play in the NBA.

    Good luck to you and the USA team!

    I must say, I wonder at times who Chris B is. Cougar Passion brings up an interesting point. Does B pump gas at the local Chevron, or is he a highly successful attorney? Maybe he is Chris Bosh! Doubtful.
    Anyway, great job to Tyler in representing himself, his team, his country, and his school. Nothing but positive can come from this.

    Hey Chris. You just got slammed by BYU and Utah fans alike. Time to put a lid on it.

    Loveridge is a very good player. He'll get better each year. This might be the year Utah beats the Y. I think this will be a down year for the Y. Haws is a very good player and obviously was good enough to make team USA. I wish him luck in these coming games.

    Hey Cougar fans.... ignore Chris B.... even die hard Ute fans don't like him. Ignore him and he will go away.

    Chris B -

    Sometimes it's just better to stay low key, and not draw too much attention to your bad team.

    I know this is probably not entirely accurate, but I get this image in my mind of some anti-BYU types living with their parents despite being in their mid-30's, hunched over their computers. . . scanning. . . scanning. . . a ha! BYU article! Tyler Haws, Mr. All-American great guy, truly special player, likely to make it to the NBA. Can I say something--anything--bad about him? Ummmmmm, yes, I've got it!!! He didn't take BYU to the NCAA tournament fresh off his mission! Ha ha, that's it! Ooooh, that'll get those Zoobies going!

    I believe everyone has divine potential--even the ones who are currently too small-minded to simply congratulate a great kid on a terrific achievement (or at least be big enough to let him go without comment).

    Crissy B,
    Didn't really backfire.
    By the way Utah will not be to the big dance anytime soon with or without Loveridge. A good player needs a supporting cast. Utah does not have that and won't for some time. Noone wants to play for the bottom feeder of ANY conference.
    By the way did you forget this was a BYU article?

    Chris B,

    I am BYU fan, but I think Loveridge is a special player. I've been really impressed with the work Krystowiak has done with the program and recruiting in such a short period of time. I with BYU could have got Loveridge (along with some other local kids that will probably go to the U).

    I'd be surprised if the U doesn't make the tournament next year.

    byu fans,

    No, loveridge is not a great player right now.

    He needs to take his team to the big dance to be considered great.

    Well, that backfired on your guys huh?

    Way to represent! Congrats on making the team. What an accomplishment! Top 12 college players in the nation? Wow. Best of luck to you. Go USA! Go BYU!

    Haws IS a great player. It's a good thing that Chris B is not picking the players to represent the USA or coaching the team. We would fail miserably, just like the Utah basketball team the past few seasons and for many seasons to come.

    Leave it to Chris B to turn a great and positive article and turn it sour.
    So Chris, Please tell me how many NCAA games Loveridge won and how far Utah went in the NCAA tourney, or any tourney for that matter.
    Tyler is a stud and a class act. Some people just can see it through their crimson colored glasses.
    I can't wait for Utah and BYU to meet on the court. Should be fun and a huge blowout for BYU.

    @Chris B

    "Great players win NCAA games.

    They certainly at the very least TAKE their teams to the NCAA"

    Do you mean like he did his freshman year against Florida in the NCAA Tournament 99-92. Come to think of it Florida is a BCS school that had recently won two national championships in basketball.

    Honestly Chris sometimes you make this just too easy.

    @Chris B - "Great players win NCAA games.They certainly at the very least TAKE their teams to the NCAA."

    I'm not sure what you're saying. Are you saying that Loveridge is not a great player? Because I'd have to disagree if that's what you're saying.

    Very good article about a stellar young man!

    It's a good idea for Tyler to get some experience in Russia. After all, the very best BYU basketball players usually end up playing in Eastern Europe.

    And the kid seems to be very humble and unassuming. Talent and Character--ya gotta love him.

    Truly a well deserved honor for an amazing young man.

    I'm really hoping Collinsworth can perform at the PG position. With Kyle at 1, Carlino at 2 and Haws at 3; this could be one of the best backcourts in the West. I really think Carlino could excel at the shooting guard, and Collinsworth would be a match up nightmare at PG. But there is no doubt that Haws will be the star the next two years. He should average 20 - 25 points per game, with several 40+ point games.

    If Austin and Sharp improve just a little bit over last year, and Mika and Worthington can translate their game to the college level, this could be our first WCC crown and a Top 25 team.

    Chris, ESPN-U will be broadcasting the USA team games. For details on timing, you can look up USA Basketball's website and find the World University men's team schedule.
