Rob Loe becomes 16th Breakers centurion.

Rob Loe made his 100th appearance for the Sky Sport Breakers against Melbourne United on Friday evening. 

The 31 year-old has become the 16th Breakers centurion and the fourth graduate of Westlake Boys High School, after Tom Abercrombie, Kirk Penney and Corey Webster, to play 100 Breakers games.

He debuted for the Breakers in 2016 and is now in his fifth season with the club having had a sabbatical in 2018-19 playing 28 games for Cairns Taipans. He has accumulated 711 points, 390 rebounds and 125 assists in his Breakers career to date.

In 2009, in his final year at Westlake Boys, Loe performed outstandingly at the FIBA U19 World Championships in Auckland. At just 17 years – the youngest member of the team – he led the Junior Tall Blacks in scoring averaging 18.8ppg.

Loe made his Tall Blacks debut the same year and went on to cement his place as the starting centre at both the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain and the 2019 event in China. He averaged 11.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game in China where he also scored at 52% (12/23) from beyond the arc. He was also a member of the bronze medal winning team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games averaging 9.4ppg and 5.0rpg. He has so far racked up 86 appearances in the black singlet.

The North Harbour representative enjoyed a standout career at St Louis University playing 133 games for the Billikens. Those 133 games, that included 121 starts, are a record number of Men’s NCAA Division I appearances by a Kiwi.

Following college Loe spent a season each at KAO Dramas (Greece) and Limburg United (Belgium)  before linking with the Breakers.

He won a NZNBL championship with the Wellington Saints in 2019 picking up the Stan Hill Award for Most Outstanding New Zealand Forward.
