Woodbury, Gesell host camp after first season of pro ball

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (KTIV) -

Last summer, Adam Woodbury and Mike Gesell had just finished their basketball careers at Iowa. This summer, the former metro stars have a year of pro hoops behind them. They were back in Siouxland over the weekend for their second annual camp for kids.

The camp is in South Sioux City where Gesell scored over 2,000 career points and won two state titles. He played professionally in Denmark last season, averaging over 10 points per game while helping his team win their league championship.

Gesell says he wants to play as long as he can.

"Styles were maybe a little bit different, but the team I was on really had a similar style to Iowa, where we really wanted to get out and run, score a lot of points and we pressed pretty much the whole game," the former Hawkeye point guard said, "I really liked that style, and I felt like I was put in a great position."

Woodbury spent most of last season in the NBA D-League, playing for Fort Wayne. The 7-footer is staying in the States getting ready for the NBA Summer League, which starts next month.

After batting injuries in his first pro season, Woodbury is focused on staying healthy in his second pro season.

"I thoroughly enjoyed it," said Woodbury. "I get to play a game I love, so I've got no complaints. Everything happens for a reason. A lot of learning experiences every time I stepped on the court, so I'm excited for where basketball's going to be able to take me."
