Rahshon Turner (born on March 10, 1975) is an American basketball player. Rahshon Turner is a veteran of the European leagues, playing for teams in the Netherlands, France and Spain.
Turner spent his collegiate career over at Fairleigh Dickinson University Knights from 1994-98. He began by being named Newcomer of the Year in the NEC. He made the NEC First Team in 1997 and 1998. In his last college season, he averaged 17.9 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 1.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game as FDU won its third league title. He led the Knights to a berth in the 1998 NCAA Tournament and nearly upset the University of Connecticut Huskies (UConn) in the Sweet Sixteen round of March Madness.
Turner tried to continue his career as a professional in Europe, but failed to latch on with teams in the Netherlands and France that first year out of school. He then returned to New Jersey and became an assistant women’s basketball coach at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. After less than two years, he decided to give pro ball another shot across the Atlantic. This time things were better. Turner, a power forward, played one season in Spain, and with the 2006–’07 season, he is in his sixth straight season playing professional ball in France.
Turner averaged 15.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game in 28 French League games in 2005–’06, and was named the top forward in the league by www.eurobasket.com. He has won several honors during his European career and was averaging 10.6 points per game and 5.0 rebounds per game as of January 11, 2007.
