BYU improved to 5-1 with the win, and Texas dropped to 5-1. The Cougars will play the winner of the late Wichita State-DePaul game on Tuesday night at 8 p.m. MST for the tournament title.

With the Cougars leading by a point in the final minute, Haws made an off-balance shot as the shot clock was about to hit zero to give the Cougars a cushion with 41 seconds left.

He scored BYU’s last seven points, and 11 of its last 12.

The Cougars made their first six 3-point attempts and finished 10 of 12 from beyond the arc.
