Top Prospect Signed

Tall Blacks centre Rob Loe, 18, the youngest player on record to represent the Tall Blacks, has signed with Saint Louis University team Billikens. Loe will have four years of eligibility beginning with the 2010–11 academic year. “Any discussion about Rob Loe has to begin with what a high-character young man he is,” Billikens’ basketball coach Rick Majerus said. “He is all about team and will be an excellent fit with our players.” The 2.11m Loe is rated by Scouts Inc. as the top college prospect in New Zealand and is ranked No. 40 among all power forwards. He was the top player for the Junior Tall Blacks at the 2009 FIBA U-19 World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.
