Stor­ment Hopes To Lead Sabers To A B-ball State Ti­tle

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page -

This sea­son, he’s av­er­ag­ing 16 points and 11 re­bounds per out­ing.

Pair­ings for the tour­na­ment, which runs to­day through Satur­day, were to be an­nounced over last week­end. On the eve of the tour­na­ment, Stor­ment took some time away from school to talk with the

What’s the key for Camp­bell this week? What can the Saber Na­tion look for? Coach Wy­att has been there (to the post-sea­son as the for­mer head coach of Aiea) — he’s won cham­pi­onships — so we need to do what he wants. We have to play to­gether. We’ve proved this sea­son that when we don’t play to­gether we don’t win. We have to have that chem­istry on the court, and we can’t turn the ball over.

What area of your game did you fo­cus on im­prov­ing in the off-sea­son? Dur­ing the sum­mer, I re­ally wanted to work on my post moves. Coach knew I had strength and that I could re­bound, so he wanted me to work on the fun­da­men­tals — my of­fen­sive post moves, like the up-and-un­der and the drop­step. Wy­att helped me out a lot. I know I have im­proved a lot.

Who is your most com­pet­i­tive team­mate at prac- tice? Kris­tian Manuel. He may be a guard, but we’re al­ways com­pet­ing ev­ery day in prac­tice to see who is the best player and the best leader on the team.

Who’s had the big­gest im­pact on you in your life? I would say my mom (El­lory Stor­ment). When I found out she had can­cer last sea­son, it re­ally took its toll on me. I try to make her proud ev­ery time I step on the court. I am the youngest ( along with twin sis­ter Bob­bielaine), with six broth­ers and three sis­ters, and none has gone to col­lege yet, so I am hop­ing to make some­thing dif­fer­ent hap­pen.

What In­ter­net site do you fre­quent the most? That would have to be Hawaii Hoops. It’s a blog — they talk about high school bas­ket­ball in Hawaii, mostly.

What is your least fa­vorite house­hold chore? Clean­ing my bed­room. I like to live com­fort­ably — I don’t need to be a clean freak. What­ever falls on the floor stays on the floor.

What movie could you watch over and over again?

(2004) with Brad Pitt. It has old Spar­tans fight­ing among them­selves.

What’s cur­rently in your iPod? I mostly lis­ten to any­thing that gets my heart pump­ing. I like hip hop. Drake gets me hyped — like

Do you play video games? What are your fa­vorites? I’d say I’m a PS3 type of guy. My fa­vorite games would have to be NBA Live 2010 and Madden ( Pro Foot­ball) 2010. I try to get all of the new (up­dated ver­sions of) games. The graph­ics get bet­ter and bet­ter.

If you could have your pick, what celebrity would you choose as your prom date? It would have to be Oprah (Win­frey). She would pay for ev­ery­thing. (Stor­ment and real-life girl­friend Tiana Mu­raoka, also a Camp­bell stu­dent, have been dat­ing for a year.)

You are stuck on Ka­hoolawe. You can have an end­less sup­ply of one food. What would it be? I’d have to say an ap­ple tree so I could keep grow­ing them. Plus, I love ap­ples.
