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.
During the Region 4 game, held at Utah Valley University’s UCCU Events Center, Haws led all scorers with 36 points including seven 3-pointers. Andrus led the Cavemen in scoring with 21 points and two powerful dunks, while Jackson was the game’s third-leading scorer with 15.
Interestingly, American Fork’s Brenden Bailey, who currently also holds a scholarship to play for the Cougars, scored 12 points — including two timely 3-point shots during a fourth quarter AF 8–2 run.
Lone Peak improved its season record to 10-2 overall and 2-0 in Region 4 play. American Fork’s overall record fell to 7-5 overall and 0-1 in region play.
The Knights next play at home against Pleasant Grove on Tuesday. The Cavemen will play at Herriman High this coming Friday.
