READING, Pa. -

The threat of severe weather Wednesday didn't stop the Philadelphia 76ers from helping young basketball stars learn the fundamentals of the game.

The Sixers annual Summer Hoops Tour stopped in Berks County.

The team's ambassador of basketball, World B. Free, helped children who play at the West Reading Playground improve their passing, shooting and dribbling skills.

The clinic took place at Berks Catholic High School in Reading because of the inclement weather.
