It was a tall order for several Broken Arrow students Friday.

The TU basketball team paid them a visit, handing out high fives and warnings about the dangers of drugs. This week is Red Ribbon Week, a time to promote drug free living.

TU basketball coach Doug Wojcik: "As you can see, they've done a great job over there. I think we have really personable kids. And I think it's good for them to see younger kids and they're role models so from that end it's really good for our guys to realize that about themselves. And then it's great for the young kids to see college players out here interacting with them and showing them hey they can be a part of things."

The idea of Friday's get-together came from Broken Arrow teacher Harriet Harris. She's the wife of former TU great, Steve Harris.
