Darren Ng (Chinese: 黄立人; pinyin: Huáng Lìrén) (born December 18, 1983 in Adelaide, South Australia) is a Chinese-Australian professional basketball player who currently plays for the Adelaide 36ers in the NBL.
Darren Ng started his NBL career with the 36ers in 2003 an played with them through to the end of the 2006–07 NBL season, although he did sit out the entire 2005-06 NBL season to pursue his medical studies. On the 27th of March, 2008 he signed with the Singapore Slingers for the rest of 2007–08 NBL season and averaged a career high 13.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. The Slingers folded before the start of the 2008-09 season, leaving him without a team although he later played for the Slingers in their International Challenge Series.
While pursuing his medical studies, Ng played for Sturt and Woodville in the ABA and won the Woollacott Medal award as the leading player in the 2006 ABA Central Conference. In 2006 Ng also played at the national under 18 tournament where he ranked fourth overall in scoring at 21 points per game.
On the 18th of June, 2009, it was announced that Darren Ng would make his return to the 36ers. The 2009-10 NBL season saw Ng average 8.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. His 2010-11 season was cut short when he rolled his ankle in a clash with Kirk Penney of the New Zealand Breakers on January 8. X-rays cleared Ng of any broken bones but further MRI scans revealed significant ligament damage which has put him on the sidelines for an expected 8–12 weeks.
