College basketball players are giving back to the Duluth community, teaching beginners the basics.

Players and coaches from the UMD Bulldogs men's basketball team coached and mentored kids with the Salvation Army Rookie Basketball Association at Lowell Elementary School Tuesday. Player Reece Zoelle told Eyewitness News that he's doing what older players did for him when he was young.

"I remember older guys that played basketball. They'd always be at basketball camps, you know, helping us out. Those were all the same guys we were watching playing on the court. It was fun to work with them and listen to them. I think it's good for these guys," Zoelle said.

Players are coaching in two, one-hour sessions Wednesday evening as well.
