Memphis Grizzlies player Quincy Pondexter is making some plans for the offseason.

Picture the scene: You're an NBA player. Your season is over. You're single. What else would you do but try to land a date with your state's beauty queen?

That's exactly what Memphis Grizzlies small forward Quincy Pondexter did. Using Twitter. And he succeeded.

Let's wind back a bit. Pondexter's season ended this week after his team was swept by the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. On Wednesday afternoon, Pondexter, 25, asked a simple question.

He made it clear that he was looking for a girlfriend with the Grizzlies' season at a close. A few hours later, Chandler Lawson, the reigning Miss Tennessee and an apparent Grizzlies fan, replied to his plea.

Her handle's @MissTN2012, so she's clearly legit. Pondexter wasted little time in making his move (discounting his inability to Google Lawson's identity).

I guess "Single? Lol" and "Date? Lol" is enough to win a beauty queen's interest when you're one of the top offensive performers on an NBA playoff team and have a $2.2 million salary lined up.

Facebook shocked that a woman runs I F*cking Love Science
When the owner of the most popular science page on Facebook revealed her identity the other day, the reaction was sadly predictable. "OMG GIRL," came the crescendo of comments from dumbfounded men (and a few women). It was as if Elise Andrew had infiltrated a 19th century scientific conference and suddenly ripped off a fake mustache in front of the assembled muttering menfolk. Cue pipes falling from open mouths. Shock! Awe! A woman!
