Tucked away in America’s heartland, a group of refugees from South Sudan are learning to play ball with the best of them. Omaha, Nebraska, is home to the largest South Sudanese refugee population outside of Africa, and these new residents are fostering a community of top-rated basketball players. Koang Doluony, who picked up a basketball shortly after arriving in the U.S. as a 9-year-old, went on to play in college. Since then, he founded the Omaha Talons, a basketball academy dedicated to teaching a new generation of young refugees how to play ball.
