LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Entertaining tricks on the hardwood tossed up an alley-oop to the fundamentals of bullying prevention.

Harlem Globetrotters player Dizzy Grant entertained students at Rangeland Elementary, Jan. 14.

But the fun comes with a serious message about bullying.

Grant spoke on the ABCs of bullying prevention: Action, Bravery and Compassion. It's a program designed by the Globetrotters.

"It helps going into these schools in this blue suit and basketball in hand, they listen better," Grant said.  "Kids love us, so coming here showing a couple tricks, I can talk to them about how to end bullying in their schools."

The Harlem Globetrotters show hits the KFC Yum! Center on Saturday, Jan. 18.
