In its 62-50 loss at Duquesne, Austin Peay had a first half to forget and a second half they would like to repeat as the season progresses.

The Lady Govs allowed Duquesne to score 41 points in the first half while its own offense struggled, making just eight field goals. However, the second half saw APSU produce an impressive defensive effort, holding the Dukes to 19 field goal attempts (eight made) and grabbing a 24-13 rebounding edge.
