Siena fan banks half-court shot, gets engaged to a mascot


A staged proposal didn’t go exactly according to plan on Thursday night during Siena’s contest with Manhattan.

During an official timeout, a Siena fan attempted a half-court shot, surprisingly she banked in the 45-foot shot. More surprisingly, she ended up getting engaged moments later to a Dunkin’ Donuts mascot (which was sponsoring the promotion).

Mark Singelais, who covers the game for the Albany Times Union, identified the fan as Erin Tobin.

Singelais later tweeted that she won a $500 Dunkin’ Donut gift card.

Wild series of events in Albany.
