I reported recently about the Washington Generals singing of Adam Powell for the tour in China, which begins next week on the 6th of July. It turns out Adam won't be the only new Washington General taking on the Harlem Globetrotters for that tour in the far east.
The Washington Generals have also signed Ryan Gunderson. Ryan is a graduate of the University of St. Francis. He started out his first two years at St. Francis playing football before switching over to basketball for his final two years. In the year since his graduation Ryan has been playing basketball for the Kankakee County Soldiers of the International Basketball League.
At St. Francis, Ryan averaged 6.9 points per game and a 38 percent 3-point shooting, with 48 percent his junior year. Hopefully that ability to score from far away will benefit the Generals in making some vital 4-point shots.
Ryan told MyWebTimes that he is hoping that the tour in China will open up doors for him to play professionally overseas. He also sees it as an opportunity to build contacts for other non-basketball related job. Clearly Gunderson sees the advantages being a general go beyond simply "losing to the Globetrotters".
I wish Ryan the best on the China tour and hope his time out there provides him with the best of oppertunities, be them with the Washington Generals or elsewhere.
