BYU Cougs in the news: Tyler Haws gets let go; Abouo leads the way for the Ivory Coast; Carlino lights it up from deep

Published: February 26, 2018

Tyler Haws didn’t last very long in Canada.

The former BYU guard and all-time leading scorer was released by the St. John’s Edge, the team announced on Sunday.

It was the fourth stop on the season for Haws who also couldn’t stick with a team in Italy and two G-League teams.

In 16 games with the Edge, he averaged 5.6 points and 1.1 rebounds in 16.4 minutes.

Abouo leads the Ivory Coast

Despite a sizable break from French League action, Charles Abouo had a very busy weekend as he suited up for the Ivory Coast in three World Cup qualifying games.

We caught up with Abouo to find out how it went during the first three games.

“It was tough,” said Abouo. “Lost to the home team, beat Senegal, lost by one to Central African Republic in overtime.”

In that loss to the home team, a 66-53 setback to Mozambique, Abouo scored a game-high 19 points on 8-for-13 shooting from the field. He added six rebounds, three steals and two assists.

He also had a strong showing in a 67-60 win over Senegal with a game-best 17 points on the strength of a 50 percent shooting day from beyond the arc. He also managed a game-high eight rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes.

Abouo followed that up with an eight points, eight rebounds and three assists before fouling out in the overtime loss to the Central African Republic.

While he put up some pretty big numbers, Abouo wasn’t overly pleased with his overall performance, citing the fact that he had to sit out the closing minutes of both losses due to foul trouble.

“Ya, I’m frustrated,” he said. “I had a chance to take these games by being on the court.”

All told, Abouo averaged team highs in scoring and rebounding with 14.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting from the field to go along with 7.3 rebounds. He also finished second on the team with 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 29 minutes a game.

Carlino lights it up from 3-point land

Matt Carlino was also in action over the weekend where he had a massive performance in an 84-73 loss to Andrea Costa Imola Basket on Sunday. In the loss, Carlino recorded a game-high 28 points on 10-for-24 shooting from the field, including 6-for-11 from 3-point range. He added five rebounds, two assists and a pair of steals in 34 minutes.

It was his eighth time scoring 20 or more points this season and his 14th straight game scoring in double figures.

On the season, he is averaging 18.9 points while adding 4.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 30 minutes a contest.

Broadus has most productive game since joining Vytautas

Rashaun Broadus had his best game since heading back to Lithuania in a 141-133 loss to VEF Riga Skola on Sunday in the Big Baller Brand International Tournament.

Broadus came off the bench in the eight-point loss and contributed seven points on 3-for-7 shooting from the floor. He added seven assists, three steals and a rebound in 16:10 of work.

Broadus and Vytautas will be back on the floor on Monday with another game in the tournament.

Collinsworth returns to Utah to face Jazz

Kyle Collinsworth made his NBA debut in Utah on Saturday night, but saw very limited time as the Jazz beat the Dallas Mavericks.

He played just two minutes in his return home but went scoreless while grabbing a rebound.

In 17 games, Collinsworth is averaging 2.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 11.9 minutes a night.
