Exchange student joins University of Wisconsin basketball team

6 March 2013

Westminster Business School student Angel Videyra joins the University of Wisconsin-Stout basketball team through the University's exchange programme.

Videyra has played for a number of different teams and his basketball career has taken him all over Europe. The coach of one his first teams, Richmond College, had contacts all over Europe and used them to set up games in countries including Poland, Spain France and Lithuania.

Coming to the United States was always something that he wanted to do, to see what it was like and to experience American basketball culture first hand. "I have always wanted to come to America and see what it was like", he said.

Angel Videyra will return to England at the end of the summer and finish his degree in Business Management and Economics. Read more about his journey on UW-Stout website.
