Woman hits half-court shot, gets marriage proposal

One-handed heave nets $500 gift card

The marriage proposal was planned. The one-handed, half-court heave that went in not so much.

A New York woman made the crowd go wild at Thursday night's Manhattan-Siena basketball game by draining a half-court shot to win a $500 gift card, reports The Associated Press.

Turns out Erin Tobin's boyfriend was actually disguised as Siena's team mascot, who was cheering her on as she swooshed the shot.

Afterward, he removed the mascot head and proposed to her, to which she replied yes, the AP story said.
