Wisconsin sophomore forward Ryan Evans is one of 10 collegiate athletes invited to play for the Global Sports Academy Team on its European Tour August 12-20.
The 10 student-athletes will play five games and visit three different countries during the tour, which also includes a sightseeing trip to London. Illinois assistant coach Jay Price will coach the squad.
Evans is one of four Big Ten athletes on the roster, joining Tyler Griffey and Brandon Paul of Illinois and D.J. Byrd of Purdue.
The 6’6 Evans averaged just over 13 minutes a game off the bench for the Badgers last season, averaging 3.5 PPG, 3.0 RPG and nearly 50% shooting from the field.
