Austin Peay head coach Carrie Daniels [2] fielded a new starting five – junior guard Nicole Olszewski [3], sophomore guard Shelby Olszewski [4], sophomore guard Shira Buley [5], freshman guard Tiasha Gray [6] and freshman forward Alexis Hardaway [7] – against Tennessee State.

The new group went toe-to-toe with Tennessee State for the game’s first eight minutes and were tied 14-14 with 11:44 left.

Nicole Olszewski [8]However, Austin Peay (6-17, 1-10 OVC) went the next nine minutes without a field goal. Tennessee State (9-12, 5-5 OVC) pieced together an 18-2 run during the APSU drought to build a 32-16 lead with 2:59 remaining. Nicole Olszewski would end Austin Peay’s drought with 2:40 left but it was two of six points in the final minutes and Tennessee State took a 40-22 lead into halftime.

Yet, they could only close the deficit to 12 points, 50-42, after senior Kaitlyn Hill [9]‘s layup at the 9:43 mark.

Meghan Bussabarger [10]Hill would strike again at the 8:03 mark but again the offense went silent for the next four minutes. Tennessee State put together an 11-0 run, capped by a pair of Keri Hess free throws at the 4:18 mark that put Tennessee State ahead for good, 66-42.

Senior Meghan Bussabarger [11] led Austin Peay with 11 points. Nicole Olszewski finished with six points and grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds.
