One of the Harlem Globetrotters was in town Tuesday to teach local elementary students how to stop bullying.

Students at Crooked Creek and Spring Mill Elementary Schools learned the "ABC's of Bullying Prevention," or Action, Bravery, and Compassion

It's part of the National Campaign to Stop Violence.  Globetrotter Dizzy Grant tells students how being part of a team is similar to how they can support to one another to help stop bullying.

"A lot of times kids are scared to tell an adult because they don't want to be labeled as a tattle-tale," Grant said.  "But I'm here to teach the kids going to tell an adult is being brave.  You are taking an action and showing them how to be compassionate and doing the right thing."

And of course a visit from a Harlem Globetrotter isn't complete without showing off some fun basketball tricks.  If you want to see the Globetrotters in action, the team will be at Bankers Life Fieldhouse next year.  Tickets to the January 20th event can be found here.
