CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) - Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade made one high school senior's night when he showed up unexpectedly at her prom.
Wade walked into a ballroom with roses and hugged Nicole Muxo on Friday night as her classmates from Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School cheered.
Muxo posted a YouTube video in April asking Wade to the prom.
She knew it was unlikely with the Heat heading to the Eastern Conference finals, but she was persistent. She even sent him a Twitter message with the ballroom's address.
Wade said he had a free night and wanted to make it a memorable one for her.
The Heat star mingled with Muxo's family, posed for lots of pictures and squeezed in a dance with his date before heading home to ice his knee.
