Winnebago, Nebraska, is a small town of just 1,500 or so residents. Located in the northeastern corner of the state, Winnebago is not a tourist hot spot. But when it’s cold outside, the town does heat up—thanks to the Winnebago High School basketball team. Lead by head coach Jeffrey Berridge and star senior guard D’von LaPointe, the Winnebago Indians have found success through their “rezball” style of play. The term rezball originates from Native American reservations—where basketball generally consists of quick transitions, plenty of running and assertive defense. But in Winnebago, rezball is more than just a style of play—it’s a winning tradition.
