LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A member of the Louisville Cardinals men's basketball team sent smiles through Saturday's UofL graduation ceremony. 

Kyle Kuric got on stage, pretending to take his girlfriend's picture as she received her diploma from UofL's School of Dentistry. Instead, he got on one knee and proposed to Taraneh Moneni while the audience and fellow graduates cheered. Moneni said yes.

It was graduation day for business major Kuric, as well.

"My family's going to be in town, and obviously her entire family is going to be here for this so we wanted to make it a big family thing," said Kuric of his proposal.

"He's so shy, I can't believe he did it in front of so many people," said Moneni.

Kuric said he was more nervous proposing than he was playing in the Final Four in April.

The couple has not set a wedding date.
