Milan Schimmel comes to Hutch CC basketball from esteemed culture, family


November 26, 2018

Milan Schimmel comes from Nixyáawii, the place of many springs, where basketball stretches beyond the 94-by-50 feet of hardwood.

“Being Native American, there is a lot of cultural affiliations,” Schimmel said. “Basketball is a thing kids do on the reservation when things are going on at home, so I feel like it has been built into what’s going on. If I was just chilling at home, my friends and I would just go play basketball. It was just something we would do all the time. It’s something we turn to do.”
