5 Australian College Stars Who Could Be The Next NBA Star - Apr 2, 2019

Eurobasket's Articles

Australian basketball is enjoying a golden period right now. The Boomers finished fourth at the 2016 Rio Olympics, a striking achievement in itself, but the National has improved since then. The two-game series against the star-studded USA scheduled for 2019 in Melbourne is an indication of the newfound respect and global credibility of basketball down under.

Certainly, the rise and rise of the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons has put the spotlight on the talent coming out of the southern hemisphere. Simmons has combined with Joel Embiid and Jimmy Butler to put the Sixers in contention for the Eastern Conference and made them sixth favourites at 16/1 in the latest basketball odds to go all the way.

Simmons is also leading the way in the modern era, inspiring young Australian basketball players with 20 freshmen alone playing US college basketball in the 2018-2019 season. Amongst these first-year players stands out Samson Froling, who already has experience playing at the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend as well as the 2018 NBA Global Camp in Italy.

Froling starred alongside fellow 2018-2019 freshmen Aiden Krause and Kody Stattmann at last year's Australian Under-20 Championships in which Froling averaged a double-double of 19.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per game. Showing all-round skill, the 6'11 man provided 4.5 assists per game and gave defences a headache with superior three-point shooting and accurate passing. In addition, the versatile potential star was instrumental in Australia winning the 2018 FIBA Under-18 Asia Cup.

Stattman joins Froling as a freshman this year, playing at Virginia. A scoring machine, he averaged 12.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game playing alongside Froling at the 2018 FIBA Under-18 Asian Cup. Dominant at every level he's played so far, he led his team in scoring at the 2018 Under-20 Championships in Australia and finished second overall.

Another talented Aussie entering NCAA Division I this season is Deng Gak, whose older brother, Gorjok, is at the University of Florida. Deng represented Australia at the FIBA Under-19 World Cup in 2015 and possesses a mighty 7'5 wingspan. He combines versatility with height, providing the Miami Hurricanes, where he'll spend 2018-2019, with a player boasting NBA potential.

Complementing Australia's newest basketball stars is a group of sophomores who further underline the strength in depth coming out of Australia. Kouat Noi is perhaps the most impressive. Noi has shown improvement over an impressive freshen year emerging as a productive player off the bench and someone who's seeing more starts in his second year. The man from Newcastle shot an eye-catching 43.4% from beyond the arc, with an average of 10.2 points per game.

Joining Noi as a sophomore this season is Makuach Maluach who'll be in New Mexico. He finished his freshmen year strongly - scoring double digits in over half of his last 18 games - including a number of impressive three-pointers

These players represent a small selection of the scale of young Australian basketball talent. With Ben Simmons emerging as one of the NBA's biggest stars, it's understandable the country is producing so many talented players.
