Texas A&,M 76, Oklahoma St. 61

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Elston Turner scored 23 points as injury-depleted Texas A&M beat Oklahoma State 76-61 on Saturday.

David Loubeau added 13 points for the Aggies (12-8, 3-5 Big 12), who led by a point at halftime and never trailed in the second half.

Texas A&M was without second-leading scorer Khris Middleton, who missed his second straight game, and point guard Dash Harris, who didn't play after injuring his right foot Monday against Kansas.

Markel Brown's 19 points led Oklahoma State (10-11, 3-5) which wasn't able to build on Wednesday's 79-72 upset of second-ranked Missouri.

Texas A&M led by seven points with about 10 minutes remaining before using a 12-4 run to extend its lead to 63-48. Daniel Alexander and Zach Kinsley each hit a 3-pointer in that span.
