The Kebs, who will provide the opposition for the Summerside Storm’s inaugural game in the first-year league, are off to a 2-0 (won-lost) start. Quebec posted home-court victories of 102-97 over the Moncton Miracles, and 104-101 versus the Oshawa Power.

“They (Kebs) are tough,” said Storm head coach and vice-president of player personnel Joe Salerno. “They are very good.

“They have a good coach in Rob Spon.”

Salerno added the Kebs have “four or five” players back from last year’s team that played in the Premier Basketball League (PBL). One player, Salerno said, the Storm will  have to keep a close eye on is five-foot-10 and 160-pound guard Royce Parran.

“I talk about Al Stewart (of the Storm) being a top-three (guard) in this league, Royce Parran would be among those top thre. He brings a lot to the table for them. They are a very good shooting team, especially from three-point (range). I think we can take advantage of them in the paint, but we really have to be on top of our game defensively in the rotations.” Storm head coach Joe Salerno
