Versatile, skilled stretch 4 man.


What others are saying: He will be a matchup nightmare for most at the camp – one of the best rim protectors going around with the ability to stretch the floor.

It is with great pleasure we announce the next division 1 college commit out of South Australia, featured athlete at www.highperformancehoopsnetwork.comOwen Hulland.

As previously reported by external sources Owen has verbally committed to University of Hawaii who compete in the Big West Conference of the Division 1 NCAA.

Owen had developed a great, unique skillset for his size from U12 level through to U18s, with theNorwood Basketball Club Inc. As a 7footer he can shoot the ball very well out to the 3 pt line, has good ball handling skills and great versatility in defense as well.

Owen played for the Basketball SA state junior team I coached at the U18 National Championships in Adelaide, Australia 2016. Here he really had a breakout tournament which put him onto our Nation's elite pathways, after a dominant national championship campaign. He was a pleasure to coach, high basketball IQ, never backing down from a challenge.

He was quickly selected for the NBA Asia Pacific Basketball Without Borders camp (Blog here: held in Melbourne in June 2016. Soon after that he received full scholarship to the internationally renowned Basketball Australia's Centre of Excellence (CoE) program. Here he moved away from home to join the CoE on the other side of the country, to train and develop in the top program for basketball player development in the country.

He was also part of the team which won the 2017 U20 Men's National Championships. The first time a South Australian had won these championshps since 1993. The team included the featured athletes:
Alex Mudronja (6'5'' PG, 2018 Prospect), Ben Carter (6'10'' PF, 2018 Prospect), Brent Hank (6'10'' Power Forward, 2017 Commit, University of Albany), Owen Hulland (7' Stretch 4, 2018 prospect), Jacob Rigoni (6'6'' Wing, 2017 Commit, Quinnipiac University), Isaac White (6'1'' PG, 2017 Commit, Stanford)

Coach Eran Ganot has signed a number of tall recruits in the 2018 class and we feel this will be a great opportunity for Owen to continue to develop his perimeter game, making him a unique prospect for high level professional leagues, right up to the NBA, in the future. We wish Coach Ganot, Owen and the entire University of Hawaii basketball program all the best for future success.
