By finishing first in scoring and second in both rebounds and assists in the conference in the 2009–10 season, he is the first men's basketball player to finish in the top two in each of these categories and in fact, the first to finish in the top five in each category in the same season.

He was selected to various 2009–10 preseason All-American teams including ESPN and FOX Sports. Turner was named among the 50 preseason 2010 Wooden Award watch list nominees and the 50 preseason Naismith College Player of the Year watchlist nominees.
