Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – While the sting of losing in the Ohio Valley Conference Basketball Championship semifinals still lingers for Austin Peay State University (APSU), it isn’t too early to look forward to what could be a record book rewrite for Terry Taylor in his senior season.

Taylor, who is from Bowling Green, KY, will head into his final season with the Govs already well ensconced into the Austin Peay State University record books, but also having a chance to put his name among the very best to have ever played for the red and white.
