The West Coast Conference announced on Monday, March 3 that BYU guard Tyler Haws is its Player of the Year.

This is the first WCC POY award for Haws, a 6-foot-3-inch, 190 pound junior from Alpine, Utah.

Haws’ award was a nice surprise even though he was named to the all-conference team in pre-season as well.

Tyler is very deserving of this honor. He’s had huge offensive games, he’s had an increased role defensively and he does so much to help us win games,” BYU coach Dave Rose said in a statement. “To be the guy that everyone tries to stop every night and to be as consistent as he’s been certainly deserves this type of recognition.”

Haws averages 23.5 points per game for the Cougars, third-best in the country as of Monday, March 3. The Cougars are currently 21-10 overall and on the NCAA Tournament bubble -- but are in the tournament according to USA Today.

Haws’ Player of the Year award is the first any BYU Cougar has won as a member of the West Coast Conference.

Sophomore forward Kyle Collinsworth was also named to the All-Conference first-team along with Haws and center Eric Mika was selected to the conference's all-freshman squad.

Haws will next lead his No. 2 seeded Cougars into the West Coast Conference tournament in Las Vegas -- set to begin later this week at Orleans Arena.
