September 16, 2013EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwestern rising junior Mike Turner (Chicago, Ill./U. of Chicago Laboratory High) has decided to take a leave of absence from the men's basketball program for personal reasons.
"Mike will take some time away from the program to focus on aspects of his life other than basketball," head men's basketball coach Chris Collins said. "He has our complete support and we will revisit his status within the program once the time is appropriate."
Turner appeared in all 32 games for the Wildcats as a redshirt freshman during the 2012-13 campaign, including making three starts. He averaged 1.9 points and 2.0 rebounds per contest. He pulled down a season-high 10 rebounds in an overtime victory against Illinois State Nov. 24 and handed out a best of eight assists at Ohio State Feb. 14.
