Martin, TN | Arena: Elam Center (4,800)

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay enters the final weekend in a position it never saw coming.

In fact, the Governors need a win this weekend–or an Eastern Illinois loss–to assure its 28th straight appearance in the Ohio Valley Conference tournament. The last time the Govs failed to appear in an OVC tourney? George Orwell’s favorite year…1984.

The Governors were picked to finish first in the OVC, but after losing center John Fraley in the season’s first game with a concussion for nine straight games, they never seemed to recover.
