On a night when Lone Peak High’s TJ Haws scorched the nets, mostly from beyond the 3-point line, players currently committed to play basketball for BYU combined for 72 points as Lone Peak held off American Fork 68–59.

The BYU commits include Lone Peak’s Haws and sophomore Frank Jackson along with American Fork’s 6-foot-10 center Ryan Andrus.
