Junior guard Tyler Haws will be the anchor of this year's BYU team. In his first season back from his Latter-day Saints mission, he averaged 21.7 points and made more than 50 percent of his 2s. Haws also attempted more than 30 percent of his team's shots when he was on the floor and posted a true shooting percentage of 58. As a staple of that scoring repertoire, he'll likely be the WCC's best player at getting to the line, and he made a whopping 88 percent of his 211 free throws last season.
