Gaels' Mills Leaves Mark on Indigenous Australians

Patrick Mills, the leading scorer on the Saint Mary's College men's basketball team, is viewed as "a hero and a role model" by indigenous youth in Australia, according to an article in the Contra Costa Times. The article notes that the freshman grew up in Canberra, playing competitive basketball at 4 years old, and later won a scholarship to the Australian Institute of Sport – a rare feat for an indigenous athlete.
