Haws was a four-year standout for the BYU basketball program and was the Cougars “Iron Man” starting in 133 consecutive games. A new record in BYU basketball history.

BYU head coach Mark Pope said in April to KSL Sports that Haws was receiving interest from “multiple NBA teams” after his collegiate career ended.
TJ Haws made clutch plays during his BYU career
Haws’ senior season this past year was his best as he consistently made big plays to deliver wins for a BYU team that finished 24-8 and No. 18 in the final Associated Press Top 25 poll. Three games saw Haws come up with game-winning plays. At Houston, Haws hit a buzzer-beater three to take down the Cougars in red. Against WCC rival, Saint Mary’s, Haws buried a deep three with seconds remaining to lift BYU over the Gaels. It just so happened to be the night before he was set to become a father for the first time. Then against San Diego, with BYU’s NCAA Tournament hopes on the line, he lobs an alley-oop to Yoeli Childs for the win.
TJ Haws hits a game winner and later tonight he and his wife are headed to the hospital to welcome their first baby into the world. You can’t make this up. 😊 #BYU #BYUhoops #GoCougs pic.twitter.com/Y5iW96siMb
