Clarksville Sports NetworkClarksville, TN – Entering Thursday night’s game against Eastern Kentucky, Austin Peay head coach Dave Loos made his message to the team clear.

Austin Peay Governors vs. Eastern Kentucky
January 12th, 2012 | Tipoff: 7:00pm
Winfield Dunn Center/Dave Aaron Arena | Clarksville, TN

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – In one respect, Austin Peay doesn’t want to forget. In another vein, the Governors need to have a short memory.

Just two weeks ago, Austin Peay owned a 10-point lead with less than five minutes left in its Ohio Valley Conference opener at Eastern Kentucky, only to blow the lead, in particular, in the final 2:30 with a quartet of turnovers in a 67-65 defeat. That frustrating defeat certainly has been too fresh on the Govs mind.
