No Surgery for LaToya Turner

March 9, 2000

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) _ Ohio State’s LaToya Turner, the Big Ten’s freshman of the year, probably will not need an operation on the knee she sprained in last week’s conference tournament.

A team doctor evaluated Turner’s knee after she was injured in the second half of a first-round victory over Indiana.

She tore the anterior collateral ligament in the knee last April and came back from that to lead the Buckeyes in scoring (11.3 points per game), rebounds (5.9 per game) and blocked shots (36).
