Three years ago Tyler Haws was a freshman guard starting alongside Jimmer Fredette. He impressed by averaging over 11 per game and making 37% of his 3s. But then he went to the Philippines on his mission for two years. It’s always tough to predict how players who have left the game will respond.
Well, Haws hasn’t exactly been causing Dave Rose to miss sleep. The kid can ball.
Haws plays more minutes than any other BYU player, and when he’s on the floor he takes 30% of their shots which is more than every WCC player besides Kevin Foster and Anthony Ireland.

His turnover% is the 5th lowest in the conference, and he makes 51% of his 2s, 42% of his 3s and 92% of his free throws.
