LSU hoops brings Christmas cheer to children at OLOL
BATON ROUGE - The LSU men's basketball team visted with children at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital Tuesday afternoon, singing Christmas carols for the children and their families and trying to spread some holiday cheer.
"It was one of the best off-the-court team experiences I've ever had," said Tigers guard Keith Hornsby, who, coincidentally, was mocked by his teammates as having the worst singing voice (his father Bruce is a recording artist).
"I didn't bring my "A" game for the caroling," Hornsby joked.
Head coach Johnny Jones and his team distributed autographed basketballs, team posters and other items for the children, who enjoyed the singing and the extra attention.
"The kids get so excited to see someone who cares about them," said Maddie Dumas, who works at OLOL.
The Tigers return to the court Thursday night, when they face UAB in Birmingham.
