Renaissance High’s Justin Turner, the Detroit Public School Proud Strong Learner of the Week, is a 6-2 sophomore combo guard who’s making a big splash as a scorer.
In a 74-50 victory against DCP-Northwestern, Turner had 22 points and eight rebounds. He followed that with a game-high 26 points in a 68-49 victory over University Prep and led all scorers with 20 points in a 45-30 victory Denby. College recruiters are already knocking at his door.
“He’s just a good all-around player,’’ Renaissance coach Venias Jordan, Jr. said. “We expect him to do some great things before he leaves Renaissance.”
The Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week award is representative of the league’s top boys and girls athletes. The award is presented by the DPS Office of Athletics and is sponsored by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators.
