Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- The USC basketball team held a special camp for the Special Olympics Tuesday night as the first day of the "8K in 8 Days" is in the books.

The USC players spent a little more than an hour teaching the fundamentals of basketball to the kids.

Senior guard Ty Johnson says the players received as much enjoyment as the participants because they could see the immediate impact of giving back to the community.

The team will continue its community outreach Wednesdsay with a trip to a local elementary school.
