Texas A&M G Turner selected as national college BKB player of week #TAMU
Texas A&M guard Elston Turner, who scored a career-high 40 points in Saturday’s 83-71 victory at Kentucky, was selected today as the Oscar Robertson National Player of the Week by members of the U.S. Basketball Writers Association. Turner, a 6-foot-5 senior, connected on 14-of-19 shots from the field (6-of-10 from three-point range) to become A&M’s first 40-point scorer in any game since Don Marbury on Jan. 5, 1985. Turner had 55 points in two games last week in helping A&M (12-3, 2-0 in SEC) carry an undefeated record in SEC play into Thursday’s game against No. 10 Florida (12-2, 2-0) in College Station.
