Get to know the freshmen
MADISON, Wis. -- Freshman Bronson Koenig comes to Madison as one of the more heralded players in recent memory. Ranked No. 73 in the Class of 2013 by Rivals.com, Koenig has performed on some of the biggest stages, leading La Crosse Aquinas to Wisconsin state championships in both 2011 and 2013.
Koenig (6-3, 190) looks to be the next in a long line of talented point guards under Bo Ryan.
"Bronson has exceptional court vision, great feel for the game and has the ability to take over a game or make plays for his teammates," Ryan said. "He also wants to be really good and play for championships. All the best guards we've had through the years have had that internal drive and motor to be the best and Bronson definitely has those traits."
