Siena Grad Hits Half-Court Shot, Gets Proposed To By Boyfriend in Disguise

Last night, the Siena Saints routed the Manhattan Jaspers, cruising to a 94-71 victory. As impressive as that blowout win was, it’s not what happened during the men’s basketball game that has the sports world buzzing.

At halftime of the MAAC matchup, 30-year-old Siena grad Erin Tobin got to attempt a half-court shot to win a $500 gift card to Dunkin’ Donuts. Watch Erin snag a shit ton of breakfast sammies and much, much more in the video below.

First off, I have to give Erin props for that amazing shot. It wasn’t the most orthodox half-court heave, but it was plenty effective. It was more like a football throw, and it definitely deserves a spot on “Dilfer’s Dimes” for its surgical precision.

The man under the coffee cup costume was Erin’s boyfriend Steve Duckett. The 31-year-old had been planning this proposal for a while, as Erin is a season ticket holder. But he wasn’t planning on her drilling such a badass shot just moments before he would pop the question. I guess he landed himself a fiancĂ©e who was born with the clutch gene. Congrats to the happy couple!
