Haws needed seven points entering the game against the University of Portland. He made six points within the first five minutes of the game and had BYU fans on their feet on this record-breaking drive assisted by Ryan Andrus.

In the game against the Pilots in January 2014, Haws made his career point high with an astounding 48 points. Haws fittingly broke the all-time scoring record playing the Portland Pilots.

Haws now holds records as the all-time career leader in total points, free throws made, free throw percentage games started and 20-point games.

Haws began his career during the end of the Jimmer Fredette mania in 2009–2010. Fredette was known for his explosive plays and fiery personality. Haws is known for his quiet confidence and consistency.

Haws played an average of 24.4 minutes per game during his freshman season, almost eight minutes more than Fredette, who averaged 18.5 minutes per game. Haws’ career average is 31.8 minutes per game.

Despite injuring his ankle at the beginning of the season against Weber State, Haws has managed to produce high numbers playing at a consistently high level. He has been a starting player since his freshman year and a team captain since his sophomore year, an achievement not even Fredette can claim.

Haws looks to add to his record this Saturday when the Cougars take on No. 3 Gonzaga in Spokane, Washington.
