CHICO, Calif. -- Corey Silverstrom left Chico State basketball as the fifth leading scorer in program history. He als finished top ten in seals and assists, as well as a two-time league champion.

His next step was to play basketball professionally. In order to get the exposure he needed, Silverstrom participated in international basketball tournaments.

Silverstrom dealt with paperwork issues, as well as a thumb surgery that had him sidelined for most of his first year out of college.

Eventually, Silverstrom had his chance and, and made the most of it. He moved to Denmark to play for Danish side Randers Cimbria.

His first season with Randers was off to a great start. He finished third on the team in scoring, and helped his squad to a second place finish with a 19-5 record.

That's when the coronavirus entered the picture.

"It was definitely a weird time. The seasons' all around the world were being cancelled. It was just one of those things where, luckily, our team did enough and I proved myself enough this past year," said Silverstrom.

Corey is now back in California where he can rest up, stay fit, and get ready for his next opportunity to play pro basketball domestically or internationally.
