APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – With its two-game Ohio Valley Conference lead now evaporated in less than a week, Austin Peay is seeking answers to its recent struggles as Jacksonville State comes to town for a 7:30pm, Saturday contest.

The Govs, now in a first-place tie in the OVC race, still are reeling from their stunning 71-68 loss to Tennessee Tech, Thursday night, a game that saw APSU blow seven-point second-half leads on three different occasions.

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay will attempt to rebound literally and figuratively from its first Ohio Valley Conference defeat when Tennessee Tech comes to town, 6:00pm, Thursday for an ESPNU telecast.

The Governors are hoping to bounce back after losing in overtime to Tennessee State, 76-74, Saturday in Nashville. It was a contest the Governors could not finish off after leading by seven with 1:18 remaining.

And rebounding, or lack thereof, proved to be a deciding factor in the defeat as TSU out-rebounded the Governors, 52-37, including 20 offensive grabs. A TSU offensive rebound tied the game in regulation and another offensive snatch helped give the Tigers a four-point overtime lead.
