PINE RIDGE, S.D. (AP) — Two women’s college basketball stars who grew up on a reservation in Oregon are scheduled to appear at the Oglala Nation Powwow on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Sisters Shoni and Jude Schimmel led the Louisville Cardinals to the 2013 NCAA championship. Shoni Schimmel became the first Native American woman to win a gold medal in the World University Games when she helped the U.S. team defeat Russia this year.

The Schimmels will be holding a workshop for local coaches and helping with a 3-on-3 basketball tournament Sunday at the Red Cloud Indian School.
