Murray State standout guard Ja Morant is a class act.
After the Racers' 90–62 second-round loss to Florida State in the NCAA tournament, Morant didn't leave XL Center in Hartford, Conn. without taking time to make a fan's day. Morant gave his shoes to a young Purdue fan in the crowd before the Boilermakers' game against Villanova.
The sophomore guard initially handed the shoes to the young fan and walked away but quickly returned to take a picture with the little guy. Morant even autographed the sneakers too.
Check out the cool moment below:
