On Twitter, self-described "avid Kansas Jayhawk fan and national recruiting dude Phenom Hoops Report" Chick Gillespie says:

"Congrats to Malvern Prep's Deuce Turner on his commitment to Bucknell. This young man is a walking bucket getter who can shoot it from the arc but can get to the rim as well. Not a true PG but can pass the ball to open shooters or back door cutters and should help the Bison day 1."

  • BisonRoadWarrior Said:
In the second half, you can see Bucknell assistant Joe Meehan under the bleachers behind the far basket.

Oops, he was IN the bleachers, not under them!

I made it sound like he was passed out or something.

Turner became Malvern Prep's all-time leading scorer with this pull-up jumper last week:

https://twitter.com/MalvernPrepHoop/statu s/1203992...

He had 67 points in their first three games to raise his career total to 1762. The former record holder, Charlie Floyd, was twice 1st team All-Philly before playing for Wake Forest in the mid-70's. .

Also of note: Turner scored 37 points in a 97-83 scrimmage win over the Hun School.

For those interested in college basketball history, here is a compilation of each year's All-Philly teams - 1st, 2nd, and 3rd teams - and the college each senior went to, dating back to 1972:

http://www.tedsilary.com/BBAll-City.htm

Of note is that each team is shown in the order the players were ranked. One example of how much talent Philly produces is that Cam Ayers was only 2nd team as a senior, albeit the top ranked player on that team. And John Griffin as a senior barely made 2nd team. Andrew Funk was also 2nd team but ranked higher than Griffin.

Last year when Deuce Turner made 1st team as a junior, he beat out seniors heading to Penn State, Xavier, St. Joes, Princeton, Rider (2), etc.

By the way, the very large player (#55) for Methacton is Jeff Woodward, a 6-10 265 lb center, who committed to Colgate in early August. Had two other offers: American and Army. Was 3rd team All-PA 6A. (Turner was 1st team All-PA 5A.)

Looks like there are going to be some points scored at Sojka over the next few years! Inside, outside, crossover, stepback . . . it all looks good.
New season, new team, new dream . . .

Turner's Malvern Prep squad lost 77-69 to undefeated Neumann Goretti tonight on a neutral court. Deuce led Malvern with 19 points.

One tweet from a reporter showed the respect he gets from opponents:
"Neuman Goretti doing a great job on Deuce turner - face guarding him like crazy and really denying him the ball."

"In college I want to get into entrepreneurship and management. As far as my career path, I fully intend on playing in the NBA, that’s the goal, but after that is where I’d to be an owner of a company."

I don't know if I have ever heard a Bucknell recruit say that his goal is to play in the NBA. They might have thought it, but I have never heard it said. Can anybody else remember an in-coming freshman say something like this?
New season, new team, new dream . . .

SJP has been coached for the past 19 seasons by the legendary Speedy Morris, who sadly is retiring after this year due to Parkinson's. Morris has won over 1000 games during his combined tenure at SJP and at Roman Catholic (14 seasons). In between, he was head coach at La Salle University, where he still ranks as their winningest coach ever. Also coached the La Salle women's team for a couple of years.

Two recent games:

1. Turner had 27 points as Malvern beat Pennington School 94-67.

2. He had 30 points as Malvern beat Unionville easily.


Turner currently has 1904 points - one of only three players in Inter-Ac history to score that many.

I have watched a couple of his games. He looks pretty impressive. I am surprised he did not have more offers.

For those who didn't follow Deuce's recruitment, his reported offers were from Bucknell, St. Joes, La Salle, Lehigh, Loyola, Delaware, RMU, MSM, and Hartford. Not a bad list, but also remember that he committed in July. Had he waited a few months, the list likely would have gotten bigger. One thing that likely kept down the bigger offers is his height. Although listed at 6-2, he may be a bit shorter than that. For a SG, that is not ideal.
