The University of Minnesota women's basketball team used its extra time during winter break to make a special visit to the Minnesota Children's Hospital on Monday afternoon. The Golden Gophers were guests on Children's TV! Star Studio, which is the hospital's very own in-house TV channel, where they co-hosted BINGO with "The Dude".

Upon arrival, the Gophers were given the rundown on the parts they would play in the show and helped "The Dude" come up with funny introductions for each player. After a quick run through, BINGO began at 1:30 p.m., with members of the team getting introduced individually. Freshman Jane Thompson, senior Katie Loberg and sophomore Rachel Banham each served co-hosts during the three BINGO sessions.

Each session had three winners, with patients (or their family members) calling in live to the studio to check their numbers and confirm their BINGO. Each call was recorded and the winners were each delivered prizes.

Whenever a BINGO was confirmed, the studio turned into a dance party, with the Gophers showing off their best moves in celebration of the winning card.

Following nine dance sessions during the hour, the show was over and the Gophers headed to the back room to sign the studio's Wall of Fame. Other names on the wall included the Minnesota Twins' Joe Mauer and the Minnesota Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio.

The team also go a special visit from one of the patients at the hospital and posed for a quick photo!

Fans can watch the show in its entirety above thanks to the Children's Star Studio! Follow the Children's Star Studio on facebook at facebook.com/ChildrensStarStudio and on Twitter @CHCStarStudioMN.

Members of the University of Minnesota women's basketball team volunteered their time at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan, Minn.,  Tuesday afternoon as part of their community service efforts over winter break.

The Gophers filled, sealed and packed food pouches that will be sent to starving children around the world, with each pouch providing enough food for six meals. At the end of the experience, the team was informed of the impact their two hours of work will have on the world, and with the help of a handful of additional volunteers, the Gophers filled 42 boxes of food which is the equivalent of 9,072 meals.

The organization also informed the team that the pouches it put together will provide 25 children with a daily meal for an entire year!

The vision of Feed My Starving Children is to strive to eliminate starvation in children throughout the world by helping to instill compassion in people to hear and respond to the cries of those in need.
