ALLENTOWN, Pa. - You're used to seeing the Harlem Globetrotters beat the Washington Generals. They helped some kids beat the blues Tuesday.

Hops Pearce went room to room at Lehigh Valley Reilly Children's Hospital. Hopps and Caleb Lopez did more than just talk about stuff, they showed off some basketball skills.

One of the patients they visited, Caleb, has been in the hospital for eight days after a second brain surgery.

Doctors found a large cyst. Caleb's handling it well, but he's not taking credit for it.

"God, all that holy stuff, my parents," Caleb said.

"He's only ten years old, but I swear, he had the maturity of a 20 year old," Pearce said.
