The coach, players, and fans all remember the name. Elston Turner, the one-man army who came into Rupp Arena and handed the Wildcats just its second loss in Lexington in the last four seasons. Now it’s time for revenge. And luckily, Turner has cooled off from his 40-point outing from three weeks ago.
– Coming straight off a career day against Kentucky, the Florida Gators helped Turner pull in his worst game of the season which netted him 4 points on 1-for-10 shooting, as we went 0-for-4 from behind the arc. The blowout loss at home surely humbled Mr. Turner after he turned in a 14-for-19 day, and sinking 6 treys against the Cats.
– Turner rebounded against Alabama, getting closer to his season average of 15.5 points per game. He dropped 13 points on the Crimson Tide on 6-for-13 shooting, but posted just 1-for-5 from three-point land.
– Louisiana State held Turner in check in Baton Rouge where he went for 5 points on 1-for-7 shooting and 1-for-6 from behind the arc. He was desperate on those heat checks and they weren’t falling.
– Georgia is awful and Turner could have had a big day blindfolded, so his 19-point game isn’t quite as impressive had it been against most any other team. However, he still shot just 5-for-14, making 6 of his points from the charity stripe.
– In his last game against Mississippi State Turner turned in an 11-point day while shooting 5-for-13 and 1-for-7 from the perimeter. He also turned the ball over a season-high 7 times.
In total since his 40-point day against Kentucky, Turner has averaged just 10.4 points per game, lower than his season average of 15.5, on 3.6-for-11.4 shooting (31.5 percent). That is down significantly from his season average of 5.2-for-12.7 (41.1 percent).
