Clarksville, TN – For the past four seasons Austin Peay basketball player Chris Horton has been one of the best players in Ohio Valley Conference history to not make the postseason, well that all changed February 27th with the Governors earning a spot in the postseason for the first time since the 2011-12 season.
Just how good has Horton been? Well, let’s start with his numbers for Austin Peay.
Heading into his first OVC Tournament game, Horton ranks 10th on the school’s all-time scoring list with 1,615 points – just 11 points from tying Trenton Hassell for ninth place — and 30 points behind Anthony Davis for eighth place.

Chris Bassitt, Arnold Leon Pitch Well in Losses
Metairie, LA – The New Orleans Zephyrs beat the Nashville Sounds twice on Monday night at Zephyr Field, taking game one 4-3, and game two 3-1.
The first matchup featured the completion of the contest the two teams began on April 27th, a game that Arnold Leon initially started. The Zephyrs could not use their original starter, Adam Conley, because he was promoted to Miami yesterday. Leon threw 3.2 innings of scoreless baseball before rain ended his outing the first time.
After the game resumed, Leon retired the first 9 batters he faced before Juan Diaz singled with two outs in the seventh. Leon would walk the next two batters and manager Steve Scarsone went to his bullpen attempting to preserve the 2-0 lead the Sounds had earned via RBI from Joey Wendle and Kent Matthes earlier in the game.
