Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay  State University’s basketball team showed some offensive potential in Sunday afternoon’s scrimmage.

The Black team rolled up 84 points and the White 66 as nine different players rolled up double-figures as the Governors prepare for Thursday’s 7:00pm, exhibition opener against Central Missouri.

“I think we were better offensively than defensively,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. “I was pleased in it is the first time where we ran the clock in a game-like situation, so I was concerned about how many points we could put in a 40-minute period.  What we did was acceptable, but at the same time I don’t think we were very good defensively.
