Turner Earns 4th Big Ten Player of Week Award
Junior Evan Turner averaged 23.5 points over two games last week to pilot Ohio State’s defeat over back-to-back ranked opponents, including a road win at sixth-ranked Purdue and against No. 13 Wisconsin. During Tuesday’s contest at Mackey Arena, Turner posted 23 of his career-high 32 points in the second half to spark a late rally as OSU recovered from a 13-point deficit to top the Boilermakers, 70-66. The Chicago native scored 14 of Ohio State’s final 18 points, including 10 consecutive tallies, to tie the game at 62-all with 2:37 to play. He also added nine rebounds while going a near-perfect 9-of-10 from the charity stripe in his third game back since missing a month because of injury. – MORE –
