PROVO -- After fracturing an orbital bone in Friday's semifinal game against TCU, Freshman guard Tyler Haws looks good to go in Thursday's game against Florida.

Tyler was on the floor Monday as the Cougars held their first practice since learning they would face Florida in the NCAA Tournament. About Haws, Coach Dave Rose said "so far, so good" and that Haws "shot the ball pretty well...for having three days off, I thought he was good."

Haws says his vision is back, and he expects to be "100 percent" by game day. While Rose indicated he hopes to start Haws against the Gators, he said it's too soon to make that call. As for Haws, he says "I'll be ready to go."

Haws' left eye remains swollen and the lids are only about halfway open. "I've been getting weird looks all day," he said.
