The Big Dance beckons again… Lady Govs down Eastern Illinois for OVC Championship

 

APSU Governors LogoNASHVILLE – Senior Nicole Jamen and sophomore Jasmine Rayner each recorded double-doubles, leading Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team to a 69-60 victory against Eastern Illinois and its second consecutive Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Championship, Saturday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena.

Austin Peay (15-17) won despite being seeded third in the tournament. The Lady Govs defeated sixth-seed Tennessee Tech, Tuesday, and second-seed Morehead State, Friday, before Saturday’s championship victory.

As was the case in all three of its tournament wins, Austin Peay jumped out on top early. The Lady Govs scored eight of the game’s first 11 points, Saturday, and ultimately would never trail in the contest. Austin Peay would later use a 15-1 run – spurred on by six points from junior Ashley Herring and four points from Jamen – over a four-minute span to push its lead to 17 points, 28-11, with 5:20 left.
