INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Kobe Bryant has come through with an assist for some high school students in Indiana by getting them out of a final exam.

William Pate is a student at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis. He told Bryant on Twitter that if the retired NBA superstar gave him a retweet, the students wouldn"t have to take a final exam.

Pate included a picture of himself and his teacher shaking on the deal. Bryant came through on Thursday, quoting Pate"s request and adding a note , ""Hope you have an A in this class.""

Bryant retired last year after 20 years with the Los Angeles Lakers.
