Here’s Haws’ history making bucket, per BYU SportsNation’s Jarom Jordan:

Others were, with much reason, simply excastic.

In a way, Haws got #Jimmered with 8 points and a career mark of 2,601. And on Jimmer’s birthday…

BYU basketball released a tribute video to Haws shortly after he broke the record.

With the record behind him, sights are now set on Haws cracking the NCAA top 20 all-time in scoring. With Gonzaga left in the regular season, and the WCC tournament at the very least, it’s very possible the senior guard climbs the ranks.
