BYU 71 SDSU 69: BYU basketball team gets last laugh at SDSU missionary impostors' expense

A section of SDSU students dressed up as LDS missionaries for Saturday night's game against BYU, some of them with bike helmets:

One of them reportedly held a sign, "Jimmer, which wife gave you mono?" Another sign said, "Hi mom(s)."

Pretty creative.

But the Cougs got the last laugh. After falling behind in the second half, BYU went on a 15-0 run. Point guard Jimmer Fredette used a left-hand scoop layup (right in front of the student section filled with the missionary lookalikes) and swished two final free throws to ice the game.

As a San Diego columnist noted: "Poetic justice."

A BYU fan might also say to the faux missionaries: "This win's for you, boys!"

Or perhaps, "Scoreboard." :-)

UPDATE: Cougars are 20-1, and ranked 10th in the USA Today/Coaches' Poll (and 12th in the AP).
