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
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
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.
Attaboy, Tyler! Represent!
@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.
Great players win NCAA games.They certainly at the very least TAKE
their teams to the NCAA
Congratulation Tyler! Here's wishing you and Team USA the best!
That is outstanding. This guy is headed for great things.
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.
Congrats to Tyler on a well deserved honor. Good luck.
Does anyone know how one can watch the games?
Congratulations Tyler on another well deserved honor!Good luck in
