Shai Gilgeous-Alexander visits Norton Children's Hospital

Incoming Kentucky basketball player Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is in Louisville for Saturday night’s Kentucky Derby Festival Basketball Classic.

Gilgeous-Alexander and the rest of the participants have been hard at work on the court, but this morning they got away from practice and gave back to those who need it most. They visited Norton Children’s Hospital in downtown Louisville to hang out with kids who are battling cancer and other serious illnesses.

We followed Gilgeous-Alexander as he went around and hung out with the kids.
