But tonight I found myself thinking of him as a clear Senior leader… Regardless of his scoring.
I love Ralston. I might catch some flak for this, but imo he’s an underrated rebounder and while defense is not his strong suit he’s not an awful team defender. He rotates fairly well and is not out of position too much. Not a good on-ball defender, but rotates and closes out well. Lead the team in charges taken this season.
In fact, in the game @ Cheats – the Cheats had the ball down 51-46 and Paige was able to push off Barber and get himself open in the corner. It was Turner that recognized and closed on him – when Paige went in the air he thought twice and attempted a pass which our main on defense, Freeman, rotated down and picked off.
Just sayin’, Turner is not completely ineffective when he’s not hitting 3’s. We need him to hit 3’s though 🙂
