Ohio Valley ConferenceDenver, CO – On the verge of seeing his unheralded, 13th-seeded Morehead State program turn into something much more impressive, the coach could have called a play for his NBA-bound center or his guard who couldn’t miss.

Instead, he decided to go with a dream.

Executing a play that came to his coach the night before, Morehead State’s Demonte Harper dribbled patiently and watched the clock tick down.

Austin Peay set to face nemesis Morehead State in key early-season OVC matchup

 

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Although Murray State is Austin Peay’s acknowledged rival, Morehead State certainly has proven to be its nemesis in recent times.

Those two clubs will square off 7:30pm, Tuesday night in Dave Aaron Arena as  the Governors close out pre-Christmas play with a key Ohio Valley Conference contest.

Until the Governors squeaked out a 56-55 thriller on a Justin Blake three pointer against the Eagles late last January, the Governors had lost four straight in the series, including a double-overtime 67-65 loss in the 2009 OVC title game.
