SEA Fellow & Former UC Davis Star Uses Performance Psychology to Train Basketball Hopefuls

Ryan Sypkens, with degrees in psychology and African-American studies from UC Davis in 2014 (and an SEA Fellow in 2017), is helping build up a basketball program that won its first NCAA Tournament game last March. He later received a master’s degree in business administration from Liberty University. After a couple of stops in professional leagues in South America and Japan, he is back in the Sacramento area with Syp’s Touch Shooting, located inside the Sky High Sports facility in Rancho Cordova.
