Some Georgia Southern Lady Eagles shared a court with Claxton Elementary students this week when the story of a star basketball player became the literary focus for kindergarteners and first graders.

For the last book distribution of the year, Anthony invited the GSU women's basketball team to celebrate in the reading event.
