Inside the Herd: Morgan Turner

Next up in the “Inside the Herd” series will be sophomore Morgan Turner. Turner, who hails from Guston, Kentucky, is entering her second season with the Lady Bisons.

As a returning player, have you felt the pressure to be a leader with so many new players on the roster?

“Yeah, I think so. Also, I don’t know if this factors in, but I’m kind of loud, so Coach Brown wants me to be vocal and lead in that way. I wouldn’t say its pressure; I’d say it’s a good thing to feel that way. But, I do want to be a leader for my team, especially coming off the freshman season.”

What’s the transition been like from freshman to sophomore season so far?

“I feel like more of a veteran. There’s not really a learning curve anymore. I know everything that I’ve been taught, and now it’s just a matter of perfecting it. I don’t have to learn from scratch again.”

What is a goal you have for yourself for this season?

“I think all of us just want to play as a team, have fun, and win games. I think that’s the whole reason we’re all here. I think we’re really going to get it rolling this season.”  

What off-court hobbies do you have?

“Sleeping, and I read a little.”

Coach Brown’s thoughts on Morgan:

“I’m excited about her coming back. She came on strong at the end of the year. We liked what she did. Some of it was just a freshman adjustment. She’s had a good summer and a good fall so far for us. That excites me going into this sophomore season.”
