DENHYM BROOKE #10
Years in NBL: 3
Last team: Franklin Bulls
The 25 year old forward had a breakout season with the Bulls in the 2021 season averaging 11.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game. “There’s no doubt that in an injury-riddled season for our team that Denhym was our backbone. He was the only player to play 20+ minutes per game and suit up for double digit appearances last season!” says Head Coach Morgan Maskell.
Denhym is a fan favourite with the Bulls community, and Denhym sends the love right back to the fans. “Our fans are awesome! They supported us through the entire season last year regardless of the result. The community and the sponsors are all very welcoming. I hope we can perform well for them in the upcoming season!”.
Denhym is Maori (Nga Puhi) who was born and raised in Auckland, attending Rangitoto College, and playing reps for Harbour Basketball. He comes from great sporting pedigree with his uncles being legendary All Blacks Zinzan and Robin Brooke. Denhym was also a member of some New Zealand junior national teams in his youth career, before attending BYU-Hawaii and the University of Hawaii at Hilo in America.
Denhym returned to New Zealand in 2019, playing for the SuperCity Rangers in the Sal’s NBL before being drafted by the Taranaki Mountainairs in the 2020 Sal’s NBL Showdown prior to joining the Bulls in 2021. Denhym is the first player to be announced by the EnviroNZ Franklin Bulls. More announcements are to come.
