Gray finished with 13 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds on the night. Her totals in rebounds and assists were both career highs for the Clarksville native.

The Trojans would get as close as five points with three minutes left but Austin Peay scored nine straight points to halt the Trevecca momentum and took a 47-36 lead into halftime.

Austin Peay’s lead would never fall back into single digits during the second half. However, the Lady Govs did not extend their lead to 20 points until Nicole Olszewski’s jumper with 6:16 left for an 83-63 advantage. The APSU lead would reach 25 points before head coach Carrie Daniels emptied her bench for the final 3:33.
