Ohio State only goes as far as Evan Turner will carry them
My question is, Does Evan Turner's back hurt yet? I do not ask because of his back injury but, because he single handily carry's his team on his shoulders game in and game out. Today, Turner scored 32 points as the Buckeyes beat Iowa by double digits. In today's game Ohio State only played with a 6 man rotation. Come March, will Turner and the Buckeye's need more help? One would think so but, Evan Turner might actually be Superman. Turner and his Buckeye's are winners of their last 7 in Big Ten play. Turner scored 20 points in the last 20 minutes of the game. It has to be noted that he matched his career high in points while shooting 54.5% from the floor. Turner added 7 boards, 5 assists and 4 steals. Did I mention he had zero turnovers? Turner leads his team in points per game, rebounds per game, assists per game, and steals per game. At 6 foot 7 and 210 lbs, Turner can play both guard spots and even play some small forward. Turner is without a doubt a top 5 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. Evan Turner is my choice for Player of the Year.
