Fan's half-court shot is followed by wedding proposal at Siena game

BY Barry Werner • February 17, 2017

First, there was the halfcourt shot to connect on during Thursday's game between Manhattan and Siena.

No problem for Erin Tobin.

Then, she had a decision to make ... one she wasn't aware of before her great shot.

Her boyfriend, dressed as a mascot, a cup of Dunkin' Donuts coffee no less, proposed to the sharpshooter. She said "Yes."

Per the Albany Times Union:

During a timeout in the first half, Siena fan Erin Tobin of Rensselaer hit a halfcourt shot to win a $500 gift card. Then she received a marriage proposal on the court from her boyfriend, Steve Duckett, who was dressed as a mascot. Tobin accepted.
