Austin Peay Governors Basketball, Morehead State Eagles set to debut OVC/ESPNU telecasts for 2011-12

 

Austin Peay vs. Morehead State | December 31st, 2011
Ellis T. Johnson Arena | Morehead, KY

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMorehead, KY – When you lose an iconic athletic figure in the Ohio Valley Conference it takes time to adjust.

Austin Peay experienced that when it lost Bubba Wells after the 1996-97 season and then Trenton Hassell after the 1999-2000 season.

Morehead State is now experiencing life without Kenneth Faried, who is now playing for the NBA’s Denver Nuggets. After a slow start, Morehead State is beginning to adjust to life without the star center who ruled the boards during his four-season career.

APSU Sports Information: Austin Peay Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsBowling Green, OH – After playing 51 seasons in Anderson Arena, Bowling Green now is in spanking brand new facility. When the Governors play the Falcons, 6:00pm, it will be only the second regular-season game played at the Stroh Center.

A new facility brings renewed energy to a program that finished just 14-19 a year ago. However, with former Syracuse and NBA standout Louis Orr leading the program, the Falcons have reason for optimism. They return honorable mention All-Mid American Conference performers, 6-7 forwards A’ustin Calhoun (12.5 ppg) and Scott Thomas (6.7 rpg) from last season’s team.

Austin Peay Governors Basketball head back on road to face Summit League fave Oral Roberts

 

Austin Peay vs. Oral Roberts
November 19th, 2011 | Mabee Center |Tulsa, OK

Austin Peay State University GovernorsTulsa, OK – When you look at the Oral Roberts lineup, it looks much like the team that played Austin Peay in Clarksville two years ago in a BracketBuster contest.

Owning those talented, but familiar faces are the reasons why Oral Roberts is the overwhelming favorite to win the Summit League in 2011-12. The Golden Eagles are led by burly forward duo of 6-6 Dominique Morrison (19 ppg), a two-time first team All-Summit performer, and 6-5 Michael Craion (13 ppg), the Summit League Newcomer of the Year in 2009-10 before missing last season. Warren Niles, a 6-5 guard, was a handful for the Govs two seasons ago and he is off to a flying start this season.
