Austin Peay Governors Basketball bounces back in 92-73 win over scrappy Tennessee-Martin

 

Clarksville Sports NetworkClarksville, TN – After a five-point loss to Southeast Missouri snapped Austin Peay’s five-game conference winning streak on Thursday, the Govs entered Saturday night’s matchup against Tennessee-Martin eager to return to the win column.

Matched up against the 3-19 Skyhawks, the Govs figured to bounce back rather easily.

And while the Govs bounced back with a 92-73 win – it was far from easy.

“No it didn’t (feel like a close game),” Govs head coach Dave Loos said. “It was a close game and that’s how Martin has been playing…they have been playing everybody pretty close. We were just fortunate enough to pull away at the end.”

The Seal of the State of TennesseeNashville, TN – Tennessee State Representative Joe Pitts (D-Clarksville) has filed legislation that clarifies eligibility for the HOPE scholarship for military dependents. House Bill 2742/Senate Bill 2571 removes the requirement that a military parent’s home of record or residence be Tennessee if a student qualifies to be classified as an in-state student and meets other specified requirements.

“Several active duty military constituents brought to my attention that when they applied for the HOPE scholarship for their children they were not eligible because the active duty member’s home of record was not Tennessee even though they were Tennesseans,” said Pitts.  “Tennessee State Senator Tim Barnes and I immediately began working on amending the wording that states “Dependent children of members of the armed forces or Tennessee National Guard whose home of record, at the time of entry into military service, was determined to be Tennessee.” «Read the rest of this article»
