It’s been a season to remember for Myisha Hines-Allen and the Louisville women’s basketball team. Despite a loss to No. 1 UConn on Monday to fall to 23-2, Hines-Allen – the Cardinals’ second-leading scorer – and her team are ranked fourth in the country ahead of their game at Boston College on Thursday.

Before that, though, Hines-Allen and her Cardinals teammates were at the TD Garden on Wednesday to watch Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics take on the Los Angeles Clippers. After watching the Celtics warm up, Hines-Allen received a little surprise from the star point guard and former NBA Rookie of the Year.

Now that’s called making someone’s night. If you weren’t convinced of Hines-Allen’s emotions right then and there, check this picture out:

Say what you want about Kyrie Irving, but this was a really cool moment. It’s a evening Hines-Allen and her teammates (and her coach) certainly won’t forget, that’s for sure.
