Iowa State’s women’s basketball team was taking care of business on Sunday night. Not only did the Cyclones defeat Alabama State, 86-47, but 6-foot-7 center Anna Prins (facing camera) got engaged. It happened at midcourt following the game. From the Ames Gazette:

“I was crying,” said Prins, who has 71 career blocked shots. “I couldn’t have asked for a better place, just with all the people that were involved: Coach (Bill Fennelly), my team, the fans in Hilton, my family was there. Pretty special.”

Why her blocked shots stat had to be inserted in that particular sentence is somewhat of a mystery. Perhaps the Gazette was marveling at her boyfriend’s ability to get around the defense? Anyway:
