EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Northwestern says forward Mike Turner is taking a leave of absence from the basketball team for personal reasons.
In a statement released Sunday, coach Chris Collins says his player is taking time to ``focus on aspects of his life other than basketball'' and that his status with the program will be revisited ``once the time is appropriate.''
Turner made three starts and appeared in all 32 games as a redshirt freshman last season. He averaged 1.9 points and 2.0 rebounds.
