Hailey Brown Michigan Wolverines Basketball

Over 150 men and 100 women playing U.S. college hoops are at an all-time high for Canada. If you want evidence that Canadian basketball is thriving, look no further than the NCAA.

On the men’s side, a record number of Canadians — over 150 — are scattered throughout American schools. Meanwhile, there are seven Canadian women among the pre-season top-10 teams alone. More than 100 Canadian women are playing NCAA basketball — another all-time high.

Here is one Canadian you should be looking out for.

Hailey Brown is a forward for the University of Michigan. Brown, now in her third season, has started for the number 19th ranked Michigan Wolverines since she was a freshman.

One year later, she earned the school’s Unsung Hero award for her contributions to the team outside of the box score as a sophomore. Now a senior, Brown is hoping her sound play translates to a pro career.

“Hailey’s been having a pretty solid season, showing a touch from outside, being able to shoot the three as well. So you gotta like what she’s been doing.”

Brown’s boyfriend, RJ Barrett, was drafted third overall by the New York Knicks in 2019.
