Caught some of Austin Peay State University’s men’s basketball practice Thursday and they were really working hard. They are just a different and much better team with John Fraley back at center. He just makes everything go and allows Will Triggs and Melvin Baker to play their natural positions. Fraley doesn’t need to score that many points, but his rebounding and presence in the middle makes a huge difference.
The Govs have made some other moves by starting freshman Herdie Lawrence and moving TyShwan Edmondson to the bench and having him as the sixth man. But even then, everything just flows much better because Fraley is there.

Nashville, TN – Daniel Graham pushed the defender, sold the play fake and eased into the end zone.
Waiting on the spiraling football thrown to him by Matt Hasselbeck was the hardest part.
Seconds later, Graham grabbed the pass for the game-winning touchdown against his former team.
Graham’s first catch as a Titan put Tennessee up with a little more than four minutes left, and the defense held on for a 17-14 win against Denver Sunday at LP Field.
“It feels real good,” said Graham, a 10-year NFL veteran who signed with Tennessee in the offseason. “Last year was the first year I didn’t have a touchdown. To come back and have the game-winning touchdown against my former team feels good. It seemed like the ball was in the air forever.” «Read the rest of this article»
