Trumannís Ben Turner capped off his junior season with a selection to the Class 3A all-state basketball team. Turner also made the Class 4A all-state team last year. Turner, who is a junior, led the Wildcats to a 17-10 record averaging 20.1 points and 10.7 rebounds a game this past season after having knee surgery in the off-season. Turner also garnered All-NEA, All-Kell and All-Conference selections. "Ben has been a joy to coach, and I'm looking forward to another season with him, this time with a full off-season and pre-season. He is a solid team leader, his teammates love to be around him and they follow his lead," Trumann head coach Billy Phelan said of his star player.
