BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Students in Buffalo got a surprise visit Tuesday from one of the world's most iconic basketball teams.

Max "Hops" Pearce from the Harlem Globetrotters visited the Roosevelt Early Childhood Center. He was there to showcase some of his skills, but also talk with the children about the Globetrotter's anti-bullying efforts. Hops delivered an interactive presentation that provided students with bullying solutions through the acronym T.E.A.M. which stands for Talk, Empathize, Ask and Mobilize.

The Harlem Globetrotters will bring their world tour to the KeyBank Center in Buffalo on Friday, February 7.
