APSU Women’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay concludes the non-conference portion of its schedule when it meets UAB in a 2:00pm, Sunday contest at Bartow Arena.

The Lady Govs will be less than 48 hours removed from a four-day stay in Pittsburgh, PA where they dropped contests to Pittsburgh, Tuesday, and Duquesne, Thursday. 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.
