APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – It only seems appropriate Austin Peay and Murray State will be battling for first place in the Ohio Valley Conference, 7:30pm, Saturday, in Dave Aaron Arena.

Since 1987 one or both teams have appeared in the OVC tournament title game. Since the turn of the century, the Govs have won four regular-season OVC titles while Murray State has won two, including last season. In other words the two programs have appeared in a multitude of intense ball match ups, some surrounded by controversy.
