CANMORE, Alta. — It’s safe to say that Justin Turner is looking to make up for lost time with the Bowling Green Falcons in 2017-18.
The redshirt freshman played in just four games a season ago, opting to use his redshirt season after battling an injury for most of the year. Turner did post 10 points and two rebounds on December 30th against the Norfolk State Spartans.
Sitting out a year is never the easiest thing to do, but sometimes it’s the right thing to do.
Now, Turner is healthy and ready to make up for lost time. With key players gone from last season, including Zack Denny and Wes Alcegaire, the Falcons needed someone to step up in 2017-18 alongside Demajeo Wiggins and Dylan Frye to help lead the offense.
After the first game of the season, that player may very well be Turner.
Despite playing just one game over the opening weekend of the 2017-18 season, Turner made a statement in the Falcons’ win over the Drexel Dragons.
After an impressive start to his redshirt freshman season, Bowling Green guard Justin Turner has been named the College Court Report Freshman of the Week(end) for November 10 – 12, 2017! Continue reading College Court Report Freshman of the Week: Justin Turner, Bowling Green Falcons
