IOWA CITY --- Before he starts popping 3s in his professional career, Matt Gatens had to pop the question. Like many of his long-range shots, it was good.
The former Iowa men's basketball captain tweeted the good news of his engagement Saturday night.
"SHE SAID YES! Happy to be spending the rest of my life with my best friend!" Gatens posted, along with a picture of himself, fiancee Erin Hake and the ring.
Gatens begins his international career in Murcia, Spain, within the week, and he said July 31 upon his signing Erin would be joining him soon after he gets settled.
