DENVER – Baye Fall has been honored with yet another recognition as he ends his stellar high school career. The Accelerated Prep standout was recently named to the World Select Team for the 2023 Nike Hoop Summit.
Set for Saturday, April 8 at Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, the 2023 event will feature a men’s game with the top international athletes 19-and-younger facing off against the top American high school seniors.
The 2023 World Select Team selects its roster from FIBA Africa, FIBA Americas, FIBA Asia, FIBA Europe and FIBA Oceania, with approved sanction of FIBA, the governing body of international basketball.
