On Monday night, the Minnesota men's basketball team took a break from summer workouts and activities to give back, visiting the families of the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital.
After arriving in style in the M.A.G.I.C. bus, the Gophers served a catered meal to kids and their families and got to know them at the dinner table. Several members of the team in seniors Bakary Konaté, Reggie Lynch, Nate Mason and Dupree McBrayer had the opportunity to meet and greet some of the patients and their families in their rooms.
The Gophers signed autographs and gave away plenty of Maroon and Gold gifts before heading out to the hospital's sport court for some fun at the basketball hoop.
Below are photos from Monday evening's event.
