Elston TurnerRIPPING RUPP

When 10th-ranked Florida (12-2, 2-0) takes on Texas A&M (12-3, 2-0) Thursday night at College Station, the Gators will have their hands full with the Aggies, but particularly with small forward Elston Turner (pictured left), who Saturday joined an elite group of visiting players to hit the 40-point milestone at Lexington. LSU's "Pistol Pete" Maravich did it three times.

Here’s a list -- and it’s short -- of the others.

* Denotes game was at Rupp Arena, which opened in 1976. Others were at old Memorial Coliseum.
