Lengthy article on Deuce and his breaking the league scoring record. Inter-Ac basketball, btw is now in its 97th season.

Yes...I have to think there is a decent chance he’d be playing 25 minutes a night right now...even if we had to go to a small lineup.

Biggest issue with Deuce is his defense. From the videos I have seen, I think there is some work to do in that part of his game.

Defense notwithstanding I think we’ve already gotten ahead of ourselves assuming he and Screen will quickly and/or automatically take us to the mountaintop. Nice to have a higher level of confidence in the quality of recent commits but time sometimes takes time. Not fair to the kid either to automatically assume he’s the next coming. Let’s get them both some help by really being aggressively targeted about our remaining slot.

No, I’m not jumping ahead to the mountaintop with Deuce, I just think he’s is more skilled and talented than many players currently on roster. To me, our offense especially could use his skill set. So I wouldn’t expect going to the mountaintop right now, but maybe the rest stop at .500 Town is reasonable.

Well, let’s hope we drive right past the .500 🏀 rest stop!

Yesterday brought a Bucknell-over-Colgate basketball victory of sorts, as Deuce Turner and Malvern Prep beat Episcopal Academy with future Raider guard Alex Capitano, 75-62.

Deuce is averaging 24.1 ppg.

It will be nice to see Turner and Capitano battle for the next 4 years.

Go Future Bison!

Playing against a very good 14-3 William Allen team, Deuce exploded for 39 points in an 80-74 win. Malvern trailed going into the final quarter.

https://twitter.com/Bucknell_MBB/status/1 221875773...


Deuce now has scored 2208 career points, passing Wilt Chamberlain for 3rd place on the all-time Philly scoring list. That list includes Philly players plus players in Philly-based leagues. The two still ahead of him are Maurice Watson (2356) and Maureece Rice (2681). Rice, btw, had a couple of good years for GWU but then got suspended and ultimately thrown off the team.


There are a lot of great Philly-area HS players who didn't score nearly as many points as Turner. A few include:

Eddie Griffin
Bradley Wanamaker
John Griffin
Mo Howard
Michael Brooks
Collin Gillespie
Joe Bryant
Tyrone Garland
Bo Kimble
Hank Gathers
Brian Shorter
Rasheed Wallace
Aaron McKie
Larry Cannon
Tony Costner
Wilt Chamberlain
Walt Hazzard
Marcus Morris
Markieff Morris
Lionel Simmons
Dj Newbill
Gene Banks
Tom Gola
Gerald Henderson
Wayne Ellington
Alvin Williams
Cam Ayers
Ryan Ayers
ETC

Nice work 137!
Pretty good chance he will move up to 2nd if he stays healthy. I wonder if there is an asterisk before the names that did not have the 3 point shot opportunity. No matter what a very good career for Turner. I hope that trend continues with the bison.

Don't think there are any asterisks, but the two still ahead of him definitely had the 3-point shot. Wilt, of course, did not - although I doubt he would have been shooting many threes anyway. Looking at the entire list, there are perhaps five players who might still be ahead of Deuce if the three had been in effect when they played. If he stays healthy, he will likely end up ahead of any realistic projection for all of the pre-1987 players.

Impressive...although we all can agree that number of points scored involves many factors. Doesn’t mean players at top of the list are better than players in the middle or lower in the list. Still, glad to welcome Deuce to Bucknell next year.

Certainly, the 3-point shot has impacted the scoring list over the last 20 years. Games played is probably even a bigger variable. Wilt, Tom Gola, Michael Brooks and several other greats on your list from the pre-80's only played varsity basketball for 3 seasons. This isn't meant to diminish Deuce's place in Philly history; his numbers would likely put him ahead of many of these players but certainly not Wilt. He'll be one of the most accomplished scorers to enter the Bison program.

Malvern Prep came from 15 points back today to beat Springside Chestnut Hill and clinch the Inter-Ac title. Turner ended up with 24 points.

Early in the week, he faced a lot of double-teaming but ended up with 13 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals in a 27 point win.

Catching up.

1. Deuce was recently named MVP of the Inter-Ac.

2. In an early round game of the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Athletic Association tournament, Malvern Prep came from behind to take out Episcopal Academy. Deuce had 20 points. Malvern was without All Inter-Ac guard Rahdir Hicks.

3. In the quarters of the same state tournament, Malvern (the 3 seed) beat Kiski School (the six seed) 78-66. Deuce led with 34 pts, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks. Hicks, their second best player, did not play again. MP now has a 22-4 record.

B137, many of us are not Twitter users like you. Where is Hicks (point guard for Malvern) going to college? Or is he still a junior?

I have seen him play multiple times-- he is fast and has improved his overall game. I think he could play in the Patriot League.

Just wondering....appreciate your research on this. His Dad, Ricky Hicks, is one of the all-time leading scorers for West Chester U (Division II).

Does anyone else think we could use a small, shifty PG who can set up our 3 point bombers?? IF not Hicks, then who are the targets for this need.
