Congratulations Tyler on another well deserved honor!

Good luck in Russia!

Does anyone know how one can watch the games?

Congrats to Tyler on a well deserved honor.

Good luck.

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.

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.

Truly a well deserved honor for an amazing young man.

That is outstanding. This guy is headed for great things.

Congratulation Tyler! Here's wishing you and Team USA the best!

Great players win NCAA games.

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

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

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.

@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.

"Great players win NCAA games.

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.

Attaboy, Tyler! Represent!

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.

But seriously folks!
Salt Lake City, UT

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.

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!

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?

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.

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?
