MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It was a star-studded day at one school in Midtown.

Grizzlies star Mike Conley dropped in on the students at Bellevue Middle School Tuesday afternoon.

He came to visit the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams, both of which are doing well this year.

The girls’ team just won the county championship, and the boys’ team won its second straight state championship.

Conley surprised the students with free basketball shoes and went over some drills the kids can use to improve their skills.

School officials also said both teams maintained a 3.4 GPA in addition to their athletic achievements.
