KLST Player of the Week: Turner channels inner ‘Mamba’ at LSC Tournament

Top Stories

SAN ANGELO — Angelo State senior guard Collin Turner is this week’s KLST Player of the Week after breaking four single game records at the Lone Star Conference Tournament.

Turner scored a tournament record 47 points, which surpassed Joe Newton’s 44-point mark set back in 1998 and it willed the Rams to a 97-92 quarterfinal win in double overtime against Lubbock Christian on Friday. The senior also set new all-time tournament single game highs in steals (9), free throws made (21) and free throws attempted (25).

Here’s Angelo State Head Coach Cinco Boone and Turner’s reaction to the record-breaking performance:

Turner’s performance against top-seeded West Texas A&M in the conference semifinals was more of the same for the Poolsville, Maryland native. He scored 13 points and recorded three assists in Angelo State’s 87-77 loss to the Buffs.
