SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference announced its 2018-19 awards today and Yoeli Childs, TJ Haws and Gavin Baxter earned honors. The All-WCC teams and award winners are voted on by the league’s 10 head coaches and are based on league games only.

Childs was named to the All-WCC First Team for the second-straight season while Haws earned a spot on the All-WCC Second Team – his third-straight season earning All-WCC recognition. Baxter was named to the All-WCC Freshman Team.

In league play, Childs (South Jordan, Utah) led the WCC in scoring at 20.7 points per game and was second in rebounding at 9.5 per contest. He was also top 15 in field goal percentage, steals, blocks, offensive rebounds and minutes played. 

Childs scored in double figures in all but one league game, eclipsed 20 points nine times and had nine double-doubles, second in the WCC. He was a first-team honoree last season and was named to the All-WCC Freshman Team in 2016-17.

Haws (Alpine, Utah) averaged 18.8 points, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals during the 16-game league schedule. He was fifth in the WCC in scoring, fourth in assists, second in free-throw percentage, third in assist/turnover ratio and 12th in steals and 3-point field goals made per game.

A first-team All-WCC section as a freshman and honorable mention recipient as a sophomore, Haws scored in double figures in 13 WCC games, had 20-plus points seven times and dished out seven-plus assists eight times.

Baxter (Provo, Utah) was BYU’s third leading scorer in league play at 7.3 points per game while adding 4.3 rebounds and a team-best 1.6 blocks per game. He also shot 68.1 percent from the field, first on the team.

The freshman forward started seven-straight games before missing the regular season finale due to illness. He was second in the WCC in field goal percentage and fourth in blocks.
