Cleveland native and WNBA Legend, Barbara Turner returns home during NCAA Women’s Final Four to give back to her community. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Turner played for East Technical High School, where she was named a WBCA All-American. She participated in the 2002 WBCA High School All-America Game before attending the University of Connecticut. In the 2006 WNBA draft, Turner was taken 11th overall by the Seattle Storm and went on to play 15 seasons internationally and in the WNBA. Turner is currently Assistant Coach for the WNBA Atlanta Dream. Turner has partnered with SERVCOM to bring PLAY LIKE A GIRL to Cleveland.


"It's important for me to give back and have a huge event like this in the city that raised me and helped me become who I am today. I’ve always carried a huge amount of pride in saying I’m from the inner city of Cleveland and have been able to achieve so many great things. I’ve always been in the mindset that my success could bring hope to this community and to our city. I wanted to let people know that I’m still wearing our city with pride and look forward to giving back as much as possible." - Barbara Turner
