Signs 3 from Murray High

Last year not many thought would sign all those girls from Murray High. She would have signed Maddie Waldrop if she had not committed to utm before Turner got job. This team is finally going somewhere. :clap:

Don't know if she signed her full class, or will have more to give. Looks like the other two signees will be outstanding for the type of game that she has indicated she wants to play. Looks like she got most of those that she brought in for a look. I am not surprised. She not only can coach, she can also recruit. Picked a great staff to start her first season too. May be some rough going at times, but nothing would surprise me knowing how Coach Turner has always been capable of improving the performance of her players. Lady Racer basketball is going to be fun again. :goracers:

I'm surprised Murray High has 3 D1 type players in one class.

Maybe yes maybe no, but it will help get the attendance up from the 75 spectators we've had in the past several years.

Still don't think the coach would have gambled on them, its her career. She knows they can play.

But is it though. Expectations may be high now but she can ride the newness of her position for at least 5 years given the historical performance of the team.

They've went toe to toe with Butler the last two years which had I think six DI players on their squad.
Believe me, I saw every game until last year. They are D1 players.

Turley is as good as a point guard I have ever seen at the high school level. She completely controls the game. Her basketball sense is out of the world. I can't tell you how many rebounds I watched her get just by going to the right spot

The other two are pretty good as well. They play together that is unselfish and pleasing to watch.

The only starter on the All A State title team not to sign D1 was the team captain and my favorite all-time player :)

D1 ball is so much different than high school, Hope they all do good but it takes a special player to take their game from HS to D1.

Yep, but I don't know much about women's ball.

Because of their quickness, along with their ability to shoot, and pass the ball, they will be good. The only problem that I see is if they run into a team that is loaded with players who are built like trucks. I look for them to play guard, and small forward. I am sure that Coach Turner will load the team with players who can compete inside when the situation calls for it. Along with the other two, this looks like a very good first year class. The problem will be in replacing so many seniors next year, especially a particular one that is considered the best in the conference by most people.

I went to Hoop Fest yesterday at Marshall Co and Murray High was playing as I was leaving. Let's just say that women's bball at Murray is going to be pretty good the next 4 years lol. Those 3 girls were good.

Last year, the Lady Tigers played one of the top rated high school teams in the nation (out of Murphysboro) and took them into overtime. They are on a different level than every team in the region with those three. They had Maddie Waldrop last year as well who is shooting about 60 from the field at UT Martin and having a pretty successful freshman campaign.

Turley has made the KY/IN all star team and also Courior Journal and Bluegrass Preps first team all state. I believe our signee from Owsley Co. has as well. I think her name is Taylor. She led the state in scoring this year. This year senior class from the state of KY was one of the all time greats. Three coming from Doran Rd.

There will be one from College Farm Road in a few years that she will hopefully get as well.

The signee from Owsley Co. KY is Maci Gibson, I think she signed LOI last week.
