A nice honor for a good player. Congrats.
Well deserved and well earned. Looks like the AP confirmed what most people who
cheer for BYU have been saying all year long. Haws is the best in the state.
Clearly the best player in the state of Utah! Go Tyler!
Tyler needs to be consistent, in the big end of the season games he did not
shine. Important that he improve his 3 point shooting in his senior season.
That said, we know the Cougars benefited greatly for his play in 2013-14.
Well, didn't take long for the pot-stirring to start here. Goodness, is it
too hard to just congratulate a guy and wish him luck?
It must have been his performance in the first round of the tournament, prior to
BYU's loss to Oregon, that won him the honor.

Maybe he earned the honor because of his play against St. Marys. Ute fans, you
remember St Marys don't you?
2013utesweep this award is not for who will be best in NBA but for who is
playing best right now in the college. If it should be based on NBA then
let's just give it to LeBron James every year why even bother.
Haws was fun to watch, if a little frustrating due to inconsistency. But
let's not fool ourselves. Just like ol' what's his name who is
warming the bench in Chicago, Haws' college awards will mean little at the
next level.But I don't base my enjoyment of college basketball
on the unknown future pro prospects of the players. I enjoy it for what it is.
The statements from some are just plain dumb. Haws won the award because he is
the best in the state, period. If someone was better, they would have won the
award. This has nothing to do with the NBA, Jimmer or Utah fans wanting to bag
on everything BYU. This is about Tyler Haws playing the sport he loves for BYU.
He is a college kid getting an education and playing basketball in the process,
so stop with the stupidity.
An ol' what's his name warming the bench in Chicago will have made
millions by the time he is done. I am fairly certain that most out there would
trade places with him in a heart beat, not just for the thrill of being in the
NBA, but for the financial security it provides.As far as his award
meaning nothing at the next level, maybe so, maybe not. That chapter
hasn't been written yet. Regardless, Tyler Haws will always be knowns as
an all-american at BYU - until the day he dies and beyond. Pretty cool if you
ask me despite what all the naysayers say.
Tyler should have been the national player of the year.
Actually, Haws' record against Utah is pretty good: 3-1. Two victories as
a frosh when the teams played each other twice a year, once last year as a soph,
and one loss this year.
Well christy makes a good point. Who wouldn't prefer to have a player that
has lead his team to a one and done in a high school gym in the nit, but some
scouts say might be a better NBA player, than a guy that has helped his team to
two ncaa tournaments including a sweet 16 and is an all american?

DuckhunterHaws didn't play on BYU's Sweet Sixteen team,
but he was a starter on the BYU team that beat Florida in the opening round of
the 2010 NCAA tournament. He was also MWC Freshman of the Year in 2009-10.Haws has averaged 22 ppg in 7 NCAA/NIT games and has a 4-3 record in
NCAA/NIT tournaments.Wright scored 10 points in an NIT opening round
loss to Saint Mary's, has never played in the NCAA tournament, and has an
0-1 record in NCAA/NIT tournaments.Who cares whether Wright is an
NBA prospect, or not, if he can't even get his team past the first round of
As every die hard fan knows,a first round exit from the NIT is a
much bigger accomplishment than playing in the Big Dance as long as you have
"NBA potential".At least that's the current talking
point on the hill.
DuckhunterHighland, UTPlease tell us how Haws played on the
Sweet 16 team during the time that he was on a mission.
54-10Haws didn't play on the Sweet Sixteen team in 2010-11, but
he did start, as a freshman, on the 2009-10 team that beat Florida in the
opening round of the NCAA tournament the previous year, as well as BYU's
NIT semi-final team last year.As Riddles cited, Haws is 4-3 in
NCAA/NIT post-season tournaments, with a 22-point scoring average.Compare that to Wright's 0-1 post-season record with only 10 points
scored versus Saint Mary's in the NIT.
SportsFanOrem, UTRe-read my post. Nowhere am I comparing Haws
with anyone. The individual referenced in my post made an erroneous statement
that you just confirmed.Thank you.
