Reagan Turner becomes all-time leading scorer

By Christopher Coombs

Reagan Turner of the Lindsey Wilson women's basketball team has etched her name into the women's basketball record book, becoming the program's all-time leading scorer.

On Saturday, Turner passed Donna Burden on the scoring list with her 15 points against Pikeville (KY) bringing her career total to 2,223 points. Burden held the program record for 28 seasons dating back to the 1993 campaign as she finished her career with 2,213 points.

Throughout her career, Turner has earned several prestigious awards, which include Mid-South Conference Player of the Year and Mid-South Conference Freshman of the Year honors. Alongside that, she has been selected to the Mid-South Conference First Team for two seasons, Mid-South Conference Second Team for one season, and NAIA All-American Second Team for two seasons.

The native of Gamaliel, KY, was also an NAIA Scholar-Athlete in 2019-20, was awarded Academic All Mid-South Conference honors for two seasons, and was the 2020 NAIA Emil S. Linton Scholarship Award Recipient.

"I'm so incredibly proud of Reagan," Head Coach John B. Wethington said. "She is a terrific basketball player that works so hard each and every day. To score that many points takes both talent and dedication and Reagan exudes both."

"Reagan has passed so many great players that have worn a Blue Raider uniform," Wehtington added. "Congratulations to her for this outstanding accomplishment."

This season, Turner is averaging a career-high 22.5 points per game as she has managed an 18.8 PPG career average across 118 games played. She is shooting a career-high 53.8 percent this season with a career mark of 47.1 percent from the floor. For her career, she has knocked down 718 jumpers and shoots at a clip of 38.1 percent from three-point range and 83.0 percent from the charity stripe.

Turner became the third player in program history to eclipse the 2,000 point mark in a career earlier this season. She also ranks in the program's top-10 in career scoring average, field goals made, field goals attempted, three-point field goal percentage, free throws made, free throw percentage and steals.
