Lady Govs meet Lady Vols in NCAA Tournament’s first round

 

APSU Governors LogoAustin Peay State University women’s basketball team will meet Tennessee in the 2010 NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship’s first round, the NCAA announced, Monday. The Lady Govs and Lady Vols will meet in a 11:16 a.m. (CDT), Saturday contest in Knoxville.

Austin Peay (15-17) earned the Ohio Valley Conference’s automatic bid after winning three games in the league’s tournament. The Lady Govs were picked to finish second in the OVC’s preseason poll and fell just shy of that expectation, finishing third with an 11-7 record. It was APSU’s best OVC finish and win total during head coach Carrie Daniels’ tenure – a two-spot improvement over the previous season’s finish (fifth) while improving the win total by one win. The Lady Govs non-conference slate included six teams selected to this year’s NCAA tournament field – Xavier (No. 3, Sacramento Region), Vanderbilt (No. 6, Sacramento Region), James Madison (No. 9, Dayton Region), Middle Tennessee (No. 10, Dayton Region), UALR (No. 11, Kansas City Region) and Chattanooga (No. 13, Sacramento Region).

The Big Dance beckons again… Lady Govs down Eastern Illinois for OVC Championship

 

APSU Governors LogoNASHVILLE – Senior Nicole Jamen and sophomore Jasmine Rayner each recorded double-doubles, leading Austin Peay State University women’s basketball team to a 69-60 victory against Eastern Illinois and its second consecutive Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Basketball Championship, Saturday afternoon at Bridgestone Arena.

Austin Peay (15-17) won despite being seeded third in the tournament. The Lady Govs defeated sixth-seed Tennessee Tech, Tuesday, and second-seed Morehead State, Friday, before Saturday’s championship victory.

As was the case in all three of its tournament wins, Austin Peay jumped out on top early. The Lady Govs scored eight of the game’s first 11 points, Saturday, and ultimately would never trail in the contest. Austin Peay would later use a 15-1 run – spurred on by six points from junior Ashley Herring and four points from Jamen – over a four-minute span to push its lead to 17 points, 28-11, with 5:20 left.

Road-wary Lady Govs continue treacherous road trip with visit to inhospitable Murray State

 

APSU Governors LogoFresh off a disappointing loss in the first game of its current road trip, Austin Peay women’s basketball team will have little time to regroup before visiting Murray State in a 5:15 p.m., Saturday contest at the Regional Special Events Center.

Austin Peay has found success infrequently away from the Dunn Center this season, winning two of its 10 true road games this season, including Thursday’s 79-70 loss at Tennessee Martin. However, the Lady Govs will have to shake their road woes as four of their remaining six regular-season games will be away from the Dunn Center.

The Lady Govs also will have to get off to a better start than they have in their last two outings. Austin Peay has trailed by more than 20 points in the first half of its latest two losses. The offense has sputtered in the opening half, making just 33.3 percent from the field in both outings. «Read the rest of this article»

Telethon at APSU to Support Haiti Relief Effort

 

Austin Peay State University LogoThe pictures and news footage coming out of Haiti are often hard to watch. The 7.0-magnitude earthquake that struck the island-nation on Jan. 12 killed an estimated 200,000 people, but many more have suffered and died in the following days due to insufficient medical personnel and equipment.

The situation is overwhelming for the doctors and nurses who’ve managed to make it into the area, but on Sunday, Jan. 31, the Clarksville community will get the opportunity to directly support medical teams working in the devastated region through Clarksville Responds: Haiti Relief Efforts for the Visitation Hospital Foundation, a city-wide concert and telethon.

Throughout the day, some of the area’s top bands and musicians will perform for the public at three locations – The First Church of the Nazarene on Warfield Boulevard, Einstein Bros. Bagels at the Austin Peay State University Morgan University Center and the Music/Mass Communication Building’s Concert Hall on the APSU campus. «Read the rest of this article»
