More from Janie McCauley at the Associated Press:
After the sly reveal, Gottlieb got hugs and cheers from players — some stunned, some already suspicious given Gottlieb was sick often during the first trimester. She held a bouquet of flowers in her right hand from director of operations Jill Culbertson and held her left hand over her belly.
"Stop! That's not funny! Is this a joke?" senior KC Waters hollered from the back row.
"I called it! I called it!" Mi'Cole Cayton yelled, the freshman guard repeatedly pointing at her chest.
"I'm going to be a big sister!" Chen responded, noting she and the baby might even share a May birthday. "I'm so excited!"
Also, a rather sweet note on Election Day.
