BYU star guard Jimmer Fredette saw the sign and apparently brushed it off.

He smiled after looking into the San Diego State student section and seeing a sign asking, "Which wife gave you mono?" reports to Jay Drew of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Fans at sold-out Viejas Arena dressed like Mormon missionaries, talked trash and even threw trash, but at the end of the day BYU survived 71-69 in a hostile environment and improved to 20-1.

Fredette, still regaining strength after bouts with strep throat, went 11-for-19 from the field, canned five three-pointers and all six of his free throws including two to seal the win.

It was a good night for Mountain West Conference basketball and a made-for-TV event, as evidenced by another sign held up in the student section that Dan Hayes from the North County Times told me about:

"Hi Mom(s)"
