Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, KY (AP) - Elston Turner scored 40 points for Texas A&M, and the Aggies topped Kentucky on the road Saturday 83-71. 

It was the first home conference loss in John Calipari's tenure as Kentucky's coach. Kentucky had won 24 straight home SEC games before Saturday. 

Texas A&M (12-3, 2-0) held an advantage as large as nine early in the second half.

With the game tied at 63 with 4:04 to play, Aggies guard Fabyon Harris hit a jumper to help send them on a string of 11 unanswered points to end Kentucky's push. Turner, a 6-foot-5 senior whose previous career high was 26 points, had 25 at halftime for the Aggies. He was 10 of 13 from the field in the first half, including 7 of 7 from inside the 3-point line.

Nerlens Noel finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds, seven blocks, six assists and four steals for the Wildcats (10-5, 1-1).
