Bronson Koenig serves as Wisconsin’s honorary captain against UW-Green Bay

MADISON, Wis. — Bronson Koenig served as Wisconsin’s honorary captain against UW-Green Bay on Tuesday night as the team continues its season long celebration of 125 years of basketball.

Koenig was a key contributor on UW’s back-to-back Final Four teams and left Madison 12th on the program’s all-time scoring list with 1,459 points.

Now the sharpshooter is using his platform to give back and educate Native American communities across the country about the importance of mental health.

“Even though I’m a man and a minority man and a former professional athlete”, Koenig said, “we all need help at points. Do not be afraid to reach out and ask for help.”

The Badgers head to the Bahamas next week for the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. Wisconsin opens up play against Dayton on November 23rd at 1:30 pm. The game will be televised on ESPN.
