CAMP WALKER, South Korea – A strong dose of inside presence in the second half from Dai’Ja Turner helped Daegu’s girls basketball team win a battle of unbeatens Saturday against Humphreys.

The sophomore center scored 14 of her game-high 28 points in the fourth quarter, and also racked up 11 rebounds and blocked five shots as the Warriors continued their hot start with a 48-44 come-from-behind victory over the Blackhawks.

Though this was the most crucial game in Jonathan Van’s fledgling season as Daegu’s girls coach, he said “it really doesn’t feel any differently from the other games. I have a very talented team.”
