Clarksville, TN – With its two-game Ohio Valley Conference lead now evaporated in less than a week, Austin Peay is seeking answers to its recent struggles as Jacksonville State comes to town for a 7:30pm, Saturday contest.
The Governors, who saw a six-game winning streak end last Saturday at Tennessee State, now need a victory to avoid a three-game losing streak. The Govs, now in a first-place tie in the OVC race, still are reeling from their stunning 71-68 loss to Tennessee Tech, Thursday night, a game that saw APSU blow seven-point second-half leads on three different occasions.
