Campbell injury forces lineup restructuring

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay will unveil a new starting lineup 7:30pm, Saturday, against Fontbonne.

It certainly is not what head coach Dave Loos had in mind, but those plans changed Wednesday when Preseason All-OVC forward Anthony Campbell, while working in a non-contact drill, crumpled to the court. Trainer Joni Johnson, when she arrived at Campbell’s side, almost knew immediately the news was not good. Tests and an MRI revealed Campbell had torn anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee. His season is finished.
