St. John’s transfer AJ Storr displayed an exceptional performance in today’s game, establishing himself as the standout player on the team. Undoubtedly, he stands out as the most athletically gifted player among the Badgers.

What truly caught everyone’s attention today was his impressive slashing ability. Storr’s remarkable length, explosive verticality, and impeccable coordination ensure that he consistently delivers high-quality shots whenever he drives to the basket. To top it off, he even sunk a few corner threes, a skill that will undoubtedly be crucial for the Badgers.

Storr’s impact wasn’t limited to offense; he also left a mark on the defensive end. In one memorable play during a scrimmage, the 6-foot-7 Storr soared into the air to secure a rebound, outmatching both Steven Crowl and Chris Hodges, who stand at 7 feet and 6-foot-9, respectively.

When asked about his adjustments to the team, Storr humbly commented, “The biggest adjustment has probably been… well, there’s been no real adjustment.”

The only area of concern for Storr appears to be occasional lapses in defensive intensity. There were a few instances during 5-on-5 play where he didn’t guard his man as closely or aggressively as Coach Gard typically expects.

Nevertheless, Storr’s offensive prowess alone makes him deserving of the attention and hype he’s receiving. If he can consistently bring a high level of effort on the defensive end, there’s no doubt that he possesses the talent and potential to become the best Badger since Johnny Davis.
