Joel Berry kisses his fiancee.

North Carolina star Joel Berry got engaged this past weekend.

Last year, North Carolina star basketball player Joel Berry helped the Tar Heels win a national title. This year, he appears to have one-upped himself.

Berry got engaged this past weekend to his girlfriend Kelsey Porter, who is a member of the dance team for the school. The duo posted photos on Instagram to celebrate the news.

It's unclear whether Berry and Porter got engaged in the Dean Dome or just took photos there afterwards. Either way, it's a pretty awesome setting. In both photos, you can see the banners hanging in the rafters.

Porter's photo includes the ring. She also wrote "I Said Yes!" on her palm for the camera.

Judging by Instagram, Berry and Porter have been dating for at least a year. It looks like they're ready to take the next step in their relationship.

Berry, in his senior season, is averaging 17.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.1 assists per contest. He's helped lead UNC to a 22-7 record - good enough to be ranked No. 9 in the country at the moment.

Congrats to the happy couple.
