As a college player, Turner lists
his biggest thrill as the first time

typical of Turner's attitude toward
basketball which coach Jerry
Bush says is ''tremendous."

He has been consistently in double
figures, however, and maintains a
10.6 points per game average.
Turner's scoring has picked up
steadily during the season, and he
will be heavily relied upon next
year In the scoring department as
the only returning regular.
Turner is also developing into a
first class ball handler. Though
he played center in high school,
he has shown a remarkable ability
to adapt to the backcourt posi
tion. His magician-like faking
often leaves opponents gaping in
the wrong direction or hanging in
midair as Turner drives by them.
Since Turner is just a sopho

many more times under the Star
