Former Wisconsin forward Ryan Evans helped his team the Bakken Bears win the Danish Basketball League over Horsens IC on Thursday.

The Bears defeated Horsens IC 96-87 to win the series 4-2. Evans earned a double-double in the last game of the series with 14 points, 14 rebounds and four assists.

This is Evans’ third season with the Bakken Bears after moving around the NBA D-League and playing in Hungary. The Phoenix, Arizona, native helped the Bears win a championship in his first season with the team in 2018-19, where he also won league MVP.
