OMAHA, Neb. -- Milwaukee Bucks guard Kyle Korver returned to his alma mater on Sunday night to participate in a discussion on white privilege and systemic racism. The 2003 Creighton graduate and 2018 Creighton Athletics Hall of Fame inductee was joined by 2007 Creighton alum Josh Dotzler and current women's basketball junior guard Rachael Saunders before an audience that included current Bluejay student-athletes and staff in addition to many more on the school's YouTube channel.

Topics discussed by the trio included the election system, invisible racism, voter suppression, police reform, the wealth gap, peaceful protests, the Black Lives Matter movement, the push by some to defund the police, Korver's experience in the NBA Bubble, and the powerful platform that athletes possess.
