As a redshirt freshman, Turner averaged 1.9 points and 2.0 rebounds over 32 games for the Wildcats.

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.
