Hungry Jack's NBL
Has banged down the door for his opportunities through sheer heart and determination, and now has proven himself a more than handy NBL player upon arriving at the Perth Wildcats for NBL24.
Having grown up in Hamilton, New Zealand, he started playing in the NZ NBL as an 18-year-old in 2015 with the Super City Rangers, before heading to college to play at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
Spent the 2015/16 season there, before returning home to continue playing in the NZ NBL where the feisty and ferocious forward played with the Hawke's Bay Hawks in 2018 and then the Southland Sharks in 2019.
That led into his first NBL opportunity at the Illawarra Hawks in the 2019/20 season as a development player and he hit the floor 16 times, going on to averaging 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds.
Went on to play with the Manawatu Jets in 2020, leading the NZ NBL in steals at 2.7 a game and then ended up finishing the 2020/21 season in the NBL at the Cairns Taipans as an injury replacement player.
Then after playing back at the Hawks in the NZ NBL of 2021, he joined the Adelaide 36ers for the next two seasons and became a more than handy player over 49 games with his hustle and energy.
Played with the Tall Blacks at the FIBA World Cup this off-season ahead of joining the Wildcats for NBL24.
