WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA 9) -- David Hovan of St. John's College High School uses basketball to teach AP Physics. 

Thursday, Harlem Globetrotters' Handles Franklin visited Hovan's class to help teach. He also shared his message against bullying the class.

"We try to get kids to fight bullying with us," said Franklin. "We have a program called the ABC's of bullying prevention."

Franklin explained that A is for action, if you're being bullied or if you see someone bullied tell an adult. B is for bravery because it takes bravery to stand against bullying, and C is for compassion.

Franklin and Hovan hope the kids take the anti-bullying message to heart, and if they pick up some cool basketball tricks too, all the better.
