MORTON -- The Morton boys basketball team is scoring points with a new anti-bullying program. The team led an assembly at Lincoln Elementary School to teach younger students about treating others with respect.

The players spread out to different classrooms to interact with the kids and read the Dr. Seuss book, The Sneetches. It led to discussions about embracing differences and putting a stop to bullying.

Players say they're excited to share the program with the younger generation. The team will visit several elementary schools this winter to share the anti-bullying message.
