Friends and family head to Kohl Center to cheer on former Regis player

Posted:

Madison (WQOW) - A former Wisconsin basketball player was back in his home state Saturday, but playing for the opposition.

Eau Claire Regis grad and Stanley native Connor Miller was in Madison Saturday as his Samford Bulldogs took on the Wisconsin Badgers in division one college hoops. Samford University is located in Alabama, so with Miller back competing in his home state of Wisconsin many area family members and friends took the opportunity to travel to the Kohl Center to watch him play, including his number one fans: his parents.

"Connor is so very grateful, he has not only the entire Regis community supporting him here today, but also the Stanley-Boyd community which is where he lives and where he grew up.  So we are grateful, all of the friends, family, relatives, the Regis community, the Stanley-Boyd community, its outstanding to see the support they've given our son all these years," says Connor's parents, Mark and Mary Miller.
