Hungry Jack's NBL
The emerging and versatile forward has banged down the door for a shot at the NBL and now is entering a second season in the NBL on a mission to show what he can do at the next level.
After being born in South Sudan, he grew up in Adelaide and came through the ranks at the Sturt Sabres before attending the Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence ahead of beginning his college career.
Spent first two years at Texas Christian University but redshirted the first season before joining Chipola College for 2019/20 and then going to the Nebraska Cornhuskers for the next two seasons, highlighted by his 2020/21 campaign where he produced 8.6 points and 4.6 rebounds.
Mayen returned to Australia and played with the Cairns Marlins in the 2022 NBL1 North season where he delivered 19.8 points and 7.0 rebounds while shooting 52 per cent from the field, 53 per cent from downtown and 85 per cent at the foul line.
That led to his first chance in the NBL with the Taipans in NBL23 and following that, the versatile forward who can play inside and outside, joined the Bendigo Braves of the NBL1 South. He played under Stephen Black and delivered 19.9 points and 8.1 rebounds.
