Storrs are Stocked

Lance Storrs realizes his numbers aren't going to blow anyone away, but the Decatur Columbia (Ga.) junior doesn't care - as long as his team continues to win.

Lance Storrs has seen a drop in his numbers from his sophomore season, but he'll take it because of his team's success.

The 6-foot-5, 205-pound Decatur Columbia High (Ga.) junior shooting guard is a key reason for the team's 26-1 record. It's not as if his numbers have taken a major hit; he went from averaging 15 points and nine rebounds to 15 points and eight boards.

``As long as we're winning, that's all the matters," said Storrs. ``We have a good team that is 10 or 12-people deep."

Storrs is a big-time shooter who's still working on taking the ball to the basket on a more consistent basis. He was a part of the Georgia Stars 16-and-under team that featured Georgia Tech-bound Gani Lawal, Georgia-bound Jeremy Price (also his high school teammate) and Jamar Moore.

``I have to get to the line more and be more explosive," Storrs said. "I rely too much on my outside shot."

Columbia's lone loss came against Walter Hill and East Hall High.

Storrs, 16, began with the Atlanta Celtics – but played for his stepfather, Harold Thompson, last summer.

``I got the exposure and I feel that I took advantage of it," Storrs said.

Storrs, a 3.7 student, said that coaching, academics and playing time will all factor into his decision.

``I don't need to start or even play a major role as a freshman, but I want to get my feet wet," he said.

Storrs said that Georgia Tech has stepped up its interest of late – and that the Yellow Jackets, Alabama and Tennessee comprise his top three with Florida, South Carolina, Kansas and Virginia Tech also in the mix.

Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt saw Storrs play over the weekend and the junior wing finished with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists.

``They've come on lately and are the strongest right now," Storrs said of Georgia Tech.
