BYU basketball player Tyler Haws is set to become the Cougars’ all-time leading scorer this Thursday against the University of Portland. Haws has already passed prominent BYU guard Marty Haws (his dad), 1989 first–round NBA draft pick Michael Smith and Boston Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge.
Haws’ 29 points against San Diego on Feb. 19 brought his career total to 2,593 points scored, just seven points away from overtaking BYU’s current all–time leading scorer, Jimmer Fredette.
Haws leads the NCAA in total points this season and is second in average points per game, with 22.3 ppg. The senior captain is also the school’s all–time career leader in free throws made, free throw percentage, games started and 20-point games.
