Without question best player in the state, by miles, and best player in the
conference. Way to go Tyler. He will lead the Cougars, best team in the state,
into the NCAA tourney and BYU will be the representative from Utah, along with
the other school from Utah valley.
Way to go Tyler. We can all see why you are the best player in the state and
well deserving of this acknowledgement. Kudos to Kyle as well as the 2nd best
player in the state. You make the Cougar Nation and the state of Utah proud.NCAA tourney is looking like a reality with the solid finish to the season.It looks like the other team from down south will also make the tourney.
Congratulations Tyler! Well-deserved. The best thing about him also is that
he's a team guy and not some "look at me" premodonna.
Tyler should be in the final 2 or 3 for national player of the year. Hopefully
he won't go to the NBA after this season.If he leaves for the
NBA, he should be a top 5 pick.
Congratulations! Well deserved honor for a fine young man! Go Cougars.
Best player in the State by miles??? I came to just congratulate
him and BYU. Comments like that always get me. But O Well there is always
THOSE FANS.Y good luck as it seems you will be in the NCAA! And Haws
is a class ACT! Good Luck Utes also.Go Aggies!
@MildredinFillmoreTyler will be in the first 10, not 5. That being
said, I think he'll wait one more year so he'll be number one overall.
Cause that's how it works.
In a conference that had exactly zero ranked teams it's not saying much to
be player of the year. The wcc is a bad conference and the great
majority of the players didnt receive any offers from any power conference
Haws is without a doubt the best player at byu.Lets not get carried
away about best in the state though. Haws is at best 3rd best player in the
state of Utah.
Chris B. I think it's debatable whether Haws is the best
player at BYU. And I could see him being 2nd best player in the state but not
third. Who do you have above him? Collingsworth and Mika? Come on, Mika
isn't that good... yet.
Oh please, Ute trolls give it a rest... other than Johnson for Arizona name me a
better player than Haws in the West, do not tell me Loveridge, Wright, or Gordon
, Loveridge and Wright disappear in big games and cannot win on the road while
struggling to be .500 in the PAC 12 and Gordon, while athletic cannot shoot
outside of ten feet. From the moment Haws has stepped on the court at BYU he has
performed. He has a target on his back while gettin mugged every game. He is a
pure shooter, smart and very athletic. He is a winner period. And yes, if he
was in your beloved PAC 12 he would be on the first team there also.
Tyler deserves credit for fighting through all the defenses designed to stop
him, which also freed up his team mates; Chris C. is the BYU glue, yet has much
room for improvement; Mika played tough, but too many fouls; Matt Carlino is a
wizard with the ball and is awesome when intensely focused; Nate Austin is an
unsung hero, only wish he'd take more shots 'cause he'd make at
least half of them; the rest of the team is much appreciated for their fighting,
competitive spirit and for playing together; Winder is much better than his
playing time shows, maybe saved the day with his defense and scoring of late.
Cougars need a plan like maybe a zone press or half court press to
push the tempo, they get really hurt when other team slows down the game,
controls the tempo, my opinion.
Congratulations to Haws! It has been fun to watch him and the rest of the
cougars play this year.
Ummm Chris, maybe you should look it up before you post. The Utes offered Tyler,
and he turned them down flat because he wanted to play for a real college
basketball team. Ty would have gotten more offers; but most teams, unlike the
Utes knew where he would sign.
Our awsome rode record proves we have the best player in the state because we
are in a power conference.Go Utes!
Congrats Tyler!!!Chris B, Tyler could have chosen any school he wanted and
he did, you are just mad it was BYU and he has done so well!!! Tell us how many
awards the mighty Utes received from that high and mighty prestigious PAC12?
Both BYU players earned their awards with hard work in games and in practice!!!
I am sure both players would say it was a whole team effort that allowed them to
win these awards because they are both team first type players!!!
Congrat's to Tyler who's a terrific player on the court and a terrific
person off the court. Looking forward to the remainder of this season and
seeing him back playing for BYU next season. He'll continue to have a
great college career and move on to the NBA no doubt. BTW-- no one should be
fooled into thinking all those claiming to be BYU fans making ridiculous
comments are actually BYU fans. Some are clearly just trying to make the rest
of us look silly.
Great players lead their team to tourneys. Can anyone on the hill say that?
Crickets.......Haws is ot only the best player in the state but BYU
has two other players that have stats real close to Wright's and better in
some categorie for example; KC has one .04 assists less than Wright but has 1.6
more rebounds per game and 1.7 blocks and scores 3 points less per game. Carlino
is real close to Wright's stats as well. Mika ia not far behind either.
To all the uts trolls, these are real numbers that cannot be disputed when
you take the crimson glasses off.
For all of those who think that Wright is the better player you have to consider
that Haws does it with usually two guys guarding him, and no he does not just
shoot three pointers. A lot of his points come in the paint. I guess when you
are the 6th best scorer in the country this will happen ans all of this while
playing the 4th toughest OCC schedule in the country. Wright has the luxury of
only have one player defending him while playing the 350th worst occ schecule in
Nine players on the first team?
