Badgers point guard Bronson Koenig visits North Dakota
this weekend for a trip about much more than hoops.
Koenig hosts a basketball camp today for the reservation
of fellow native americans in Standing Rock, North
The local tribe currently is protesting the construction
of an oil pipeline through sacred Native American
Yesterday, Koenig left from La Crosse with donations
to deliver to the protesters.
And today - he offers up insight on the trip.
Given this day in age, people care more about stuff
like sports than what they should really care about.
I am greatful that I have the platform that I have.
Just meeting all of these young kids, young native
kids and just seeing the smiles on their faces.
It brings some joy to my life and I am happy that
I can bring some joy to theirs.
