While both have contributed in other ways, former BYU basketball players Jonathan Tavernari and Tyler Haws have been mired in shooting slumps for most of their respective seasons in Europe.
That all changed over the weekend as each scored a season high in important games.
Tavernari had a huge afternoon in a 93-78 win as Mens Sana snapped a four-game losing streak. He finished with 27 points on 11 for 14 shooting from the floor, including 5 for 6 from beyond the arc will adding four rebounds in 28 minutes.
“Didn’t think that getting back to my peak would take this long,” said Tavernari who has struggled offensively since he fractured his ankle at the end of last season. “To have a good game that everything worked and everything flowed was great to my confidence, and to reward my coaches and teammates for believing in me during this tough start.”
