Elston Turner joins elite company, picks off USBWA honor

Elston Turner, the former Washington guard now at Texas A&M, was named U.S. Basketball Writers Assn. Oscar Robertson national player of the week for his 40-point outburst Saturday that propelled the Aggies over Kentucky, 83-71, at Rupp Arena in Lexington.

Pretty good company Turner joined: Two other players have scored 40 or more at Rupp: Chris Jackson, the ex-LSU guard; and David Robinson, the former Navy center.

Turner had 25 in the first half against the Wildcats. He finished hitting 14 of 19 shots, including six of 10 from three-point range.

“What he did was off the charts,” said Kentucky coach John Calipari. “He played an unbelievable game.”

Turner transferred out from the UW to be nearer his home outside Houston.
