Austin Peay State University GovernorsMartin, TN – Austin Peay State University’s bench combined for 47 points as the Governors defeated UT Martin, 85-67, Thursday night in Ohio Valley Conference basketball action played at the Elam Center.

The victory improved the Governors to 11-19 overall and 7-8 in the OVC. The Governors entered the  night needing either an Eastern Illinois loss or an APSU victory to qualify for their 28th straight OVC tournament. Although EIU’s loss at Morehead State earlier in the night allowed the Govs to qualify, the Govs coaching staff chose not to inform the players to make sure they maintained their focus.
