Charleston, IL – A thrilling ending was befitting of a one-point game that featured 12 lead changes and 13 ties, but in the end, the Austin Peay State University (APSU) women’s basketball team came up just short, as they dropped a heartbreaker in the final seconds of regulation to Eastern Illinois, 73-72, Saturday at Lantz Arena.
Auburn, AL – A career-high 28 points from senior Jordan Bowden wasn’t enough to push the Tennessee men’s basketball team past 13th-ranked Auburn, as the Vols fell, 73-66, inside Auburn Arena on Saturday.
Tennessee fell to 15-12 overall and 7-7 in SEC play, while the Tigers improved to 23-4 and 10-4 in league action.
Bowden scored his 28 points on 9-of-12 shooting from the field, and he was 7-of-7 from the foul line. The Knoxville native has now knocked down 20 consecutive attempts from the charity stripe. He also added a game-high six assists to his already stuffed stat line.
Nashville, TN – A year earlier, Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill was still with the Miami Dolphins, where he concluded his seventh season with the Dolphins. Robinson engineered a trade in March 2019 that landed the signal caller in Tennessee, where he began the campaign as the backup to Marcus Mariota.
Although he did not start until the seventh game of the season, Tannehill authored one of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history.
