JOHNSON CITY (WBNG) -- The Binghamton University Men's Basketball Team spent time Monday morning reading to children in our community.

The players met with 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at Johnson City Elementary School to talk about how and why they use reading in their everyday lives.

They were split into four groups and read a book to the children. The players then answered the students' questions.

Members of the basketball team says it feels good to come out and build relationships with the community.

"When I was a kid, we had some older guy come in and help us. So me as an older guy coming in here to help and teach them to be successful just like I is very important," said Freshman Shooting Guard Lorenzo "Brenton" Mills.

After they finished reading, the basketball players introduced themselves to the students and told them what they're studying at Binghamton University.

One of the players sang happy birthday to a student who had a birthday in January.
