A Half-Court Heave, Then a Proposal for Siena College Basketball Fan

It was quite a night for college basketball fan Erin Tobin: she made a half-court shot to win a $500 gift card, then received a marriage proposal seconds later.

Duckett described his immediate reaction after witnessing Tobin hit the shot. She said yes to that.

The guy on his knee - who was in the Dunkin' Donuts mascot costume - was boyfriend Steve Duckett, who proposed to Tobin.

While I'm guessing these two had been dating for a while, it'd be hard to say no to anyone dressed up as Dunkin' coffee.

A NY man proposed to his girlfriend Thursday night with the help of Siena Athletics and Dunkin' Donuts.

"Oh, no! And then I said to myself, of course she would hit the shot".

Her already big night ended on another high note, with Siena beating Manhattan 94-71.

"This is probably the greatest moment ever", she said after making the shot and saying yes to her fiancee.

Duckett planned the engagement in honor of Tobin's alma mater and her loyalty to Saints basketball.
