Since then, the 6-foot-6 Old Dominion freshman has spent them lighting up opposing basketball teams.
Saturday was no exception. Turner came off the bench for 21 points and 15 rebounds to send the Lady Monarchs past North Carolina 91-77 for their first win of the season.
"Certainly, Corrina Turner had her coming-out party today," ODU coach Wendy Larry said.
Turner just entered her third season of basketball. She scored eight points in the Monarchs' first two contests but quickly caused some jaws to drop Saturday at the Smith Center. The game was moved because of a wrestling tournament in Carmichael Auditorium.
Turner entered the game with her team trailing by 10 points early in the first half.
Less than eight minutes later, Turner won a battle on the offensive glass and scored a put-back to give the Lady Monarchs (1-2) the lead for good.
Her performance was indicative of a game for UNC (2-2) in which it could not get anything accomplished on the inside.
Turner matched up against UNC's own 6-6 freshman center: Candace Sutton. But Sutton could not hold her ground against her stronger counterpart, shooting 4-for-11 from the field and grabbing six rebounds.
"Well, Candace was sick before the game," UNC coach Sylvia Hatchell said. "In the locker room, I asked her two or three times if she was all right. She wasn't feeling well, and I think she missed a lot of shots that she'd been making."
