After answering a question about his team winning the rebounding battle 38-33 on Saturday night in BYU’s 84-71 win over Saint Mary’s, coach Dave Rose changed the subject without any prodding. "It is interesting that I would field six or seven questions, and nobody would ask me about Ty [Haws] getting 33 [points]," Rose said. "I mean, that’s amazing, that he has been as good and as consistent as he has been. I think even you guys are starting to overlook [Haws’ accomplishments]." Guilty as charged. Since picking up two fouls in the first minute of the game at Santa Clara on Jan. 18 and sitting out the rest of the first half, Haws has simply been the most prolific scorer in college basketball the past two weeks. He scored 16 points in the second half against the Broncos, 48 points in the triple-overtime loss at Portland, 23 points in the blowout loss at Gonzaga, 38 points in Thursday’s win over Pacific and 33 against the Gaels, going 10-for-17 from the field and 11-for-12 from the free-throw line. That is 142 points — 71 each week — in his last four games, all while shooting 53.4 percent (46-for-86) from the field. "You have to give so much credit to Ty, because of the work that he puts in, and the skill level that he has, and the consistency that he plays with," Rose said. "But the rest of our team, those guys … are delivering the ball in the right spots for him, at the right time, for him to be able to do what he does."
