Students take part in basketball-based math lessons with help from Milwaukee Bucks

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Local students got a chance to spend time with some Bucks players over the weekend. 

Jevon Carter and AJ Green brought a basketball-based educational board game to life with Math Hoops Live. 

The board game was the final layer of a 16-week curriculum designed to engage 4th-8th grade students while developing math skills through the sport. 

Nearly 10,000 Wisconsin students take part in this curriculum and those who did showed a 21% improvement in their math testing scores from the year before.
