The biggest of the point guard’s goals involves a phone call from an NBA general manager next June, and signing a professional contract. He spent his entire summer working towards turning that goal into a realistic possibility.

During previous off-seasons, Koenig would head back home to relax and escape the chaos that is the Wisconsin Badgers’ campus life, recharging from a year’s worth of a busy student-athlete schedule. This past summer, instead, he flew West, hired two different trainers and pushed his body to peak limits on a daily basis.
