Hot on the heels of the signing of Jalen King, the Storm have now locked in our second Import sport for our Championship Men’s roster for 2023.
Joining the Storm in 2023 is 6’3″ Guard/Forward Joshua Chery from Newark, New Jersey.
Chery has ha previously played at Central Maine Community College before moving to University of St Francis, Illinois and is now playing for Ansett in the Darwin Basketball League, where he has been playing against NBL1 and Big V State Championship players, and is currently averaging 27 points & 7 rebounds.
In his first message to Storm fans, Chery says that he’ll bring “passion and a love for the game” and that Storm fans can expect him to “put in my all, whenever I step on the court” and that he also is looking forward to “being involved with the community as well”.
Chery says he’s “grateful for every opportunity” and is truly thankful to God for being in the position he’s in.
Coach Luke Beauglehall says of Chery “he’s a strong guard who does a bit of everything, posts up guards and can knock down the 3. He’s also having an outstanding season in the Darwin League where he’s just had his 5th straight 30 point game in a row”.
Welcome to the Storm Family Joshua, we can’t wait to see you in action this season!
