The Iowa State women’s basketball team came away with a comfortable 86-47 win over Alabama State on Sunday, but center Anna Prins was left celebrating more than just a blowout victory. After the game, Iowa State head coach Bill Fennelly led a young man named Ryan De Hamer out onto the court. Considering De Hamer is Prins’ boyfriend, she probably had a hunch about what was going to happen next.
With a microphone in-hand, De Hamer got down on one knee at center court and proposed to the 6-foot-7 senior. She said yes.
“I was crying,” Prins told the Ames Gazette. “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.”
