Elston Turner scored 28 points and Ray Turner 16 to help Texas A&M to a 74-56 win over South Carolina on Saturday night in the first-ever meeting between the new Southeastern Conference foes.

The Aggies trailed by two points early in the second half before using a big run to take a 46-36 lead. South Carolina couldn't get anything going on offense for the first 10 minutes after halftime en route to just over 29-percent shooting in the second half.

The victory broke a two-game skid for Texas A&M (17-12, 7-9), and was the ninth loss in 10 games for South Carolina (13-16, 3-13).

Michael Carrera's 16 points led the Gamecocks and Bruce Ellington added 10 points.

The Aggies will remain at home to host the LSU Tigers on Wednesday. It will also be senior night with Elston Turner, Ray Turner, and Jared Johns set to play their last game at Reed Arena.
