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”.
