Wisconsin basketball star Nigel Hayes is a natural in front of the camera, and on Thursday used his time to ask Lea Michele on a date.

The electric Badgers forward told the media:

I have like a select crush, Lea from Glee. So if she’s watching this, if she hears this, hello. I’m available. You know. Call, text, call the Kohl Center, Coach Gard’s number. If you could get this to her, tweet this out maybe, send her a poke on Facebook. I don’t know how this works. You know kids in social media these days. I don’t know how they do that. And also if Ms. Lea has a friend, I have a friend, and you know, like Biggie said, your friend can be my friends, and we can be friends.
