The month of February has been good for North Carolina basketball — they are on a six-game winning streak, and those good vibes have carried off the court with star point guard Joel Berry getting engaged to girlfriend Kelsey Porter this past weekend.
“She said yes and that’s really all that matters,” Berry captioned.
She said yes and that’s really all that matters! I love you so much and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you!
Kelsey, who is a senior and UNC cheerleader, also announced the news on her IG:

Can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you! I love you with all my heart!!
How did Berry make his big proposal? The News and Observer’s Joe Giglio has the details on the master plan:
So Berry told Porter, also a senior at UNC, to meet him at the Smith Center on Saturday. He pretended he had lost something when she got there.
“Can you just tell what you’re looking for, so I can help you?” Porter asked Berry.
He knelt down in the middle of the court and asked her to marry him. She said yes.
“The biggest thing is it’s about her being happy,” Berry said.
