A soldier surprised his Philadelphia 76ers dancer girlfriend at Saturday night's game.

Sergeant Elliott Burgos returned from an overseas deployment a week early -- and didn't tell his girlfriend of three years, Angela.

He surprised her at the game -- in front of 20,000 people.

During the first quarter break, the dancers were about to take to the court, but first they watched a video of troops greeting family and friends.

Check out the happy reunion:
