"I am here to win championships, make a positive empowering difference in young people's lives as they transition to adulthood. We have a very bright future here at DSU and I expect to hit the ground running."

Turner continued about her style of coaching.

"I orchestrate an exciting style of basketball both offensively and defensively and it will be fun to play and watch. I am a young energetic coach with years of experience," she said. "I am from a basketball coaching family, my father, my uncles, as well as my cousins’ coach. My expectations are high in the classroom, the community and the court. I am blessed to be the newest member of the DSU family. I have prayed, primed and prepared for this perfect storm to come together. We will all strive for excellence in the representation of God, family, academics and athletics. Go Storm and God bless."

Last season, Dixie State finished with a 15-13 overall record and 12-6 in PacWest record. The Red Storm earned a 4th seed in the inaugural PacWest Tournament and were eliminated in the semifinals.
