In honor of this morning's incredible video of Mormon missionaries bringing the pain in what seems like an impromptu game somewhere in rural America, here are history's seven greatest moments for Mormon basketball players.


5. When Danny Ainge, who is 6'4", cleanly tackled the 7'1" Tree Rollins after Rollins elbowed him in the head.

In 1983. Ainge of course also gets credit for being on one of the two or three best basketball teams of all time, the 1986 Celtics.

3. When Madsen took a loose ball with 30 seconds left in an NCAA tournament game Stanford was trailing and dunked it (plus the foul) to put them ahead and send them to the Final Four.

SPECIAL BONUS: The greatest-ever scramble by a Mormon quarterback through the entire Minnesota Vikings defense.
