WSU men’s basketball team visits kids at Sacred Heart

Children staying at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital in Spokane got a giant-sized visit from the Washington State Cougars men’s basketball team Tuesday afternoon.

The visit kicks off a couple of days for the Cougs in the Lilac City.

Cougs players handed out some gifts like posters, gloves, and shirts to the children.

7-year-old Carson Stocum was diagnosed with diabetes and has been in the hospital for the past few days.

“I’m really happy,” said Stocum. “I got a flag, gloves, and a towel they touched!”

“Anything that we can do make their day a little bit and come and visit them and talk with them a few minutes to brighten their day,” said Washington State Cougars basketball player Jeff Pollard.

“I hope it’s something they remember for the rest of their lives,” said Washington State Cougars basketball player Arinze Chidom.

Stocum was released to go home Tuesday night which he was also made him happy.

The Cougars are fresh off beating the Huskies in Seattle on Sunday. They’ll host the Oregon State Beavers Wednesday night in the Spokane Arena.
