Falcons basketball starter Justin Turner decides to stay at BGSU

BOWLING GREEN (WTVG) - Justin Turner wanted to see if a Power Five school with more exposure was right for him, but the first team All-Mid-American Conference performer ultimately decided Bowling Green was the place he wanted to be.

Turner, a rising redshirt-senior basketball star, entered the NCAA transfer portal and considered leaving BGSU for either Marquette, Missouri, or Iowa State.

With his return now intact, BG will once again be one of the favorites to win the MAC. Turner started all 34 games for the Falcons, averaging 18.2 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.4 steals per game.

Turner will graduate in May with a degree in personalized studies.
