									                         Ryan Iversen began his basketball career in 2000 as a
                         guard for the University of Delaware Blue Hens. During his
                         three years at U of D, he led the team in rebounds and was
                         ranked #1 career rebounder as a guard for U of D. He also
                         was entrusted with the honor of being Team Captain for the
                         basketball team during his Junior and Senior years. Ryan
                         graduated in 2003 with a degree in International Business
                         with a concentration in International Economics.

                         Ryan’s second career in basketball at the University of
                         Delaware began in 2005 when he was hired as Assistant
                         Coach. During the last two years, he has made a great
                         contribution to the coaching staff and players.



 On Dec. 26, 2006 during a practice session, Ryan and a
 player collided on the court while taking part in a practice
 drill. By the next afternoon, Ryan had undergone surgery
 for acute compartment syndrome, in which swelling occurs
 in a closed muscle group surrounded by fascia, or a
 resilient membrane. By Dec. 28, he had undergone a
 second operation and begun a hospital stay that lasted until
 Jan. 13th.

 Ryan’s prognosis is uncertain at this time, and one of our
 major concerns is the financial burden this has placed on
 him with mounting medical costs. As a result, the Blue Hen
 Basketball Club is coordinating an effort to raise funds to
 help Ryan with these expenses.



If you would like to help Ryan with his medical expenses, please send a
     check to the “Blue Hen Basketball Club”, 5701 Kirkwood Highway,
 Wilmington, DE 19808 and please put in the memo box “RYAN”. If you
