There have been plenty of wild wins and heartbreaking losses in BYU basketball history, including the Cougars' 114-110 triple-overtime loss at Portland on Thursday night.

While Tyler Haws' 48 points weren't enough to overcome the sharpshooting of Bobby Sharp and the Pilots, the Cougars have enjoyed their fair share of exciting wins that were full of highlight-reel material.

Here's a look back at 10 other BYU contests that were filled with unforgettable moments, and a few Cougar fans wish they could forget.

I am surprised there is no mention of the UCLA/BYU game played in Provo in March, 1965 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The drive to win. Greg Ballif got way too little credit in this game. He's the reason we were close in the second half. Ainge really didn't have a great game but for the last play, as awesome as it was. A lot of future, long time NBA players on the floor that day...

What, no Congdon, Raymond, Fairchild, Liimo, Eakins, Cosic, Nemelka, et. al. mentions? As usual, "Top This and Top That" lists have very short memories and seem to cater to those of young & recent vintage. Except for maybe Danny Ainge, this one's no different.
