APSU Women’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team allowed 14 three-point field goals and dropped a 69-42 non-conference contest to Bowling Green, Saturday, at the Dunn Center.

Bowling Green (10-1), ranked No. 2 in the www.CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Poll, ran its win streak to 10 games primarily on the back of its three-point shooting. The Falcons shot more three-point field goals (30) than they did two-point field goals (26). However, it worked out for the visitors as they made 46.7 percent from outside compared to just 38.5 percent inside.

The Lady Govs again suffered through a seven-minute scoreless streak in the first half and another six-minute drought in the second half, allowing the Falcons to build double-digit margins each time.

The Lady Govs did open each half impressively, scoring seven of the game’s first 10 points in the opening 3:34. APSU’s second half start was even better, a 9-0 burst over the first 3:32 that cut the lead to seven points, 34-27. However, they went into their second-half drought right after scoring their ninth point of the frame.
