Mormon missionaries and the University of Melbourne Basketball Club
Mormon Studies, basketball, University of Melbourne, missionaries
Believe it or not, Mormon missionaries from America once made a significant, but now virtually unknown, contribution to sports at the University of Melbourne. At the dawn of 1957, the university’s sports organisation requested a Latter-day Saint missionary to coach the Melbourne University Basketball Club (MUBC), which consisted of several teams. This might surprise us today, yet in light of the events that preceded it, the request made very good sense.
