If anyone questioned if macey turley can play at this level the answer is a resounding “yes”

I thought Turley did an excellent job of running the offense. But stronger competition awaits, I believe the girls are gonna be fun to watch and will be one of the better teams we've had in a long time.

Macey is as solid as they come. She has been able since at least 7th grade to dribble with either hand and keep her head up. Not all that unusual at the D1 level but very unusual at even the HS varsity level. She rarely shows positive or negative emotion and I believe she knows what Rachelle wants almost before Rachelle knows. I bet there’s not many head coaches anywhere with more confidence in their point guard than Rachelle has in hers. The only time she seems flustered is when she is interviewed. As the old saying goes, she wouldn’t say crap if she had a mouth full. There’s certainly a long way to go but we could not ask for a much better start. Looks like we have a pretty nice post player as well.

Nice showing tonight from Coach Turner and crew. Turley with 21-6-6. 1 TO in 30 minutes. Racers win 96-61 over Lipscomb. At the end of the third quarter it was Murray High 41-Lipscomb 39

Ashamed to admit, but I originally thought only Turley was a Division 1 talent of the three when they first signed, but they have proven me wrong already! Mayes is already a starter too and deservedly so, and Burpo is coming along, though bigs usually take a little longer. (And she's developing a nice 3-point shot!)

Just shows, no surprise, that Coach Turner knows a lot more about basketball than I do.

PG play is a lot better than in recent years. Love the way Macey, JGW, and Lex share the basketball.

It’s probably not fair to single them out but my point was the three from Murray High were out scoring Lipscomb’s whole team through three quarters.

They are good.

However, suspect that coaching has a whole lot of impact as well.

The real issue will be when they hit the OVC schedule and get the fine officiating that focuses on how many stoppages they can induce in a game. Hard to get any continuity when every play is a foul.

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