Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) has announced game times for every home men and women’s basketball game for the upcoming 2019-20 year.
For the men’s team, third-year head coach Matt Figger has Terry Taylor, whose presence alone should make the Governors a contender in the Ohio Valley Conference, while the offseason has seen nine new faces added to supplement the two-time All-OVC playmaker. After shattering the school three-point record with 241 a year ago, the women’s team and head coach David Midlick returns 80 percent of those makes from a year ago, with Brandi Ferby and Brianah Ferby and Maggie Knowles set to dial long distance early and often this season.
The first of two men’s exhibition contests will tip at 7:00pm, Thursday, October 24th against Union.
The women’s slate kicks off 7:00pm, Tuesday, October 29th with an exhibition contest against Tennessee Wesleyan.
In a rarity, both teams will open regular-season play with a non-conference doubleheader, November 5th, with the women hosting Kentucky Wesleyan at 5:30pm and the men following with Oakland City.
All told, this season’s schedule features 20 dates and 30 total games, including 10 doubleheaders. The six midweek doubleheaders begin with the women’s game at 5:30pm, with the men’s immediately following, while Saturday doubleheaders are scheduled to begin with a 1:30pm women’s tip-off.
Renewal packets for incumbent season ticket holders should begin arriving in mailboxes soon, while new season ticket sales began last week.
