<BR/>here was a touching scene before the OSU vs. Texas Tech basketball game Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.&#160; OSU football players Justin <BR/>Blackmon, Brandon Weeden, Richetti Jones, Brodrick Brown and Cooper Bassett helped four childhood cancer patients shoot baskets to raise money for Coaches vs. Cancer.<BR/>They put 60 seconds on the clock and each player and child got a basketball and fired up as many shots as possible.<BR/>Each basket earned $60.00 for Coaches vs. Cancer.&#160; With the voice of the Cowboys Dave Hunziker calling out each bucket, the participants drilled 53 baskets and raised over $3,000.00 for the cause.<BR/>They were also responsible for over 3-thousand smiles.&#160; <BR/>Congratulations to those Cowboys involved for raising money and touching lives.&#160;
