PROVO, Utah – BYU senior guard TJ Haws has been the West Coast Conference’s Player of the Week. Last week, Haws helped lead the Cougars to a 3-1 record last week including a third-place finish in the Maui Invitational.

In the Maui Invitational, Haws drew comparisons to Steve Nash from ESPN broadcaster Bill Walton for his ability to pass, create, and shoot the ball at a high level. Haws posted averages of 16.5 points and 4.8 assists while shooting 54.8 percent from the field and 54.2 percent from three-point range.

Haws’ best performance of the week came in the Cougars victory against Virginia Tech in the third-place game of the Maui Invitational. BYU defeated the Hokies 90-77 with Haws leading the way with 20 points and 7 of 11 shooting from the field and 4 of 7 from three.

This is the second time in Haws’ career that he has been named WCC Player of the Week. Last season, Haws was the conference’s best player after leading BYU to a pair of road wins against San Diego and LMU in league play for the week of February 18th, 2019.

Haws’ Player of the Week honor this season is BYU’s first WCC Player of the Week honor.

BYU is currently 6-3 on the season and will next be in action on Wednesday against rival Utah at the Jon M. Huntsman Center on Wednesday. Tip-off for BYU-Utah is at 6 p.m. Radio coverage begins at 5 p.m. on the legacy home of the BYU Cougars, KSL NewsRadio.
