A year ago, Tyler Haws was out of basketball, except for the occasional pick-up game in the Philippines, where Filipinos would automatically deem the 6-foot-5 "giant" their center.

Now back at Brigham Young, the sophomore guard is coming up big in a different way - with impressive numbers for a returning missionary.

His 42 points Saturday against Virginia Tech were the most by a BYU player not named Jimmer since Bob Skousen had 47 in 1961, and the highest output by a Cougar sophomore in school history.

BYU will be counting on him, especially with the Cougars (10-4) opening West Coast Conference play Thursday against Loyola Marymount (7-6) and with big man Brandon Davies nursing a high-ankle sprain.
