T.J. Haws reaches rarefied air at Lone Peak
Basketball notes » Knights guard dropped school-record 40 points in win over Westlake.
First Published Jan 18 2014 05:54 pm • Last Updated Jan 18 2014 11:44 pm

The list of players who have come through Lone Peak’s boys’ basketball program in recent seasons reads like a college recruiter’s fever dream: Tyler Haws, Eric Mika, Jackson Emery, Nick Emery.

But perhaps none has gone on a stretch of dominance quite like senior T.J. Haws did in his last two games.

The BYU-bound guard torched Westlake for a Lone Peak-record 40 points Jan. 14 and followed it up Tuesday with 36 in a comfortable win over rival American Fork. Knights coach Quincy Lewis said more performances like that may be yet to come as Haws finally is healthy after playing banged up for much of the season.

"It doesn’t surprise me because I know what he’s capable of," Lewis said. "The truth of the matter is he’s just getting his health back. He had a high ankle sprain at the beginning of November that not a lot of people knew about. We held him out of practices. He spent the first couple months trying just to get healthy."

Talent on display

When Wasatch Academy visits Layton Christian on Monday for each school’s last preseason game, it won’t be your typical Class 2A affair. The matchup features four of the best players in the state, in Wasatch Academy’s Geno Luzcando, Koby McEwen and Cody John and Layton Christian’s Christian Musoko.

Luzcando is headed to Idaho State, while the other three also have received much interest from college programs, meaning the game will be the rare Class 2A game that would have scouts drooling.

It’s not difficult to believe the Riverton girls’ basketball team is one of the top squads in the state. The Silverwolves are the defending Class 5A champs, after all.

But the Silverwolves have taken things to a new level this season, becoming dominant in a way even last year’s team never was.

Riverton is undefeated through 14 games and is winning by an average of nearly 28 points, according to MaxPreps.com.
