APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsRichmond, KY – “Call him the streak” was a novelty tune about the “streaking fad” written by Ray Stevens back in 1974, a song that rose all the way to No. 1 on the charts.

For Austin Peay and Eastern Kentucky, Stevens could tweak his lyrics a bit to the tune of: “Call them the Streak busters.”

Back on January 8th, Austin Peay entered CFSB Arena and defeated Murray State, 66-64, to snap the Racers 25-game home winning streak.
