Dakota Wesleyan University basketball coaches Matt Wilber, left, and Jason Christensen, second from right, along with Corn Palace Director Scott Schmidt, right, have a laugh with long time DWU fan Emmanuel ‘Junior’ Hille as he tells a story from someone sitting in his chair for a basketball game. Hille has been sitting in the same chair, row 5, seat 6, at the Corn Palace since moving to Mitchell in the 70s. Schmidt was replacing the chair and with the help of DWU gave the seat to Hille.
