Elston Turner is Transferring From Washington

Washington announced this morning Elston Turner will leave the Huskies.
Turner, a sophomore, averaged 5.5 points and 1.9 rebounds, in 36 games last season. He started three games, but lost his job in December. Turner attempted 108 three-pointers and sank 41, the second most on the team. Despite his accuracy behind the arc, he shot .545 on free throws.
He shared minutes most of the season with Scott Suggs, another three-point specialist, and emerged as a big scoring threat in the postseason.
Turner scored 14 points against Marquette in the first-round of the NCAA tournament and tallied 10 against New Mexico in a second-round win that sent the Huskies to the Sweet 16.
After the season, Turner talked about taking a bigger responsibility next season, but now it appears as if he’ll take his talents elsewhere.
Turner averaged 3.6 points as a freshman.
