APSU will play a non-Division I opponent for the second consecutive season, both the result of a late schedule change – it defeated St. Catherine by an 84-62 score last season.

Tiasha GrayAustin Peay has opened the 2013-14 season by scoring 69 or more points in each of its first three games, something it last accomplished in the 2010-11 season. Friday’s game will be the final outing in a three-game, six-day stretch for APSU.

The Lady Govs current five-game homestand will be its longest since the 2005-06 season when it had a six-game homestand. Austin Peay is a young squad in 2013-14 with five sophomore and five freshman dominating the 13-woman roster.

The Lady Govs’ seven returnees accounted for only 808 of team’s 1700 points scored (47.5 percent). Austin Peay’s 2013-14 schedule features 11 games against nine teams that reached the 2012 postseason, including national runner-up Louisville.

Division II Trevecca opened its 2013-14 season with a 109-66 victory against NAIA-foe Brescia, November 9th. Six Trojans scored 10-plus points in the win, with Kaci Britt Bell leading the effort with a 17-point, seven-rebound outing. TNU made 15 three-pointers in the contest, one shy of the program record.
