The Tall Black centre Rob Loe has been named in the World Select Team for the prestigious Nike Hoop Summit in the United States next month.

Loe, who's 2.13 metre tall, starred for the Junior Tall Blacks at last year's Under 19 World Championships in Auckland and was then picked for the national senior team at the age of 17.

He joins nine other players who'll take on the best high school athletes in Portland, Oregon, on April 10.

Last year the world team won for the first time since 1998.
