On-court proposal caps off a perfect game for a West Virginia University basketball player

The night couldn't get much better for West Virginia University basketball player Bria Holmes.

The senior scored a whopping 27 points in an 82-48 win against rival Oklahoma State to cap off Senior Day, but little did she know that her world was about to change forever... and it had nothing to do with basketball.

Holmes was in the midst of a post-game interview on the court when the reporter noticed a man trying to get her attention. The man turned out to be the baller's boyfriend, Oterrious Diggins. Diggins then got down on one knee as a surprised Holmes burst into tears.

Her teammates, naturally, were freaking out in the background.

And her answer? It took a little while, but she said yes through tears. Clearly Holmes wasn't expecting the proposal — at least not then — because she was absolutely speechless when the on-court reporter asked her about what she was feeling in that moment.

"I don't know!" she said. "Excitement!"

So adorable! And this is only the start of what's sure to be a huge 2016 for the Connecticut native. According to reports, the star forward is expected to go in the first round of the 2016 WNBA draft.
