Stan Hill (2017) | Player

Stan Hill was inducted into the Hall of Fame last year for his contribution as a Player.

Hill played basketball for New Zealand for 14 years, nine of them as captain. A high point of his long career was leading New Zealand to a historic victory over Australia in 1978 under the direction of Coach Steve McKean.

Hill played in New Zealand for several provincial and franchise teams, helping each to become national title contenders, and he also played successfully in the United States for San José State and in England. He was offered a chance to play in the American NBA, but opted for a club in England instead. Hill later turned to coaching, including being assistant coach of the national team.
