Holding a five-point lead with a little more four minutes remaining, Austin Peay watched Morehead State rally down the stretch to beat the Governors, 68-64, in an Ohio Valley Conference game televised by ESPNU.

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.

Austin Peay State University GovernorsRichmond, KY – The first two months of the 2011-12 season aren’t exactly what Austin Peay’s basketball team had in mind.

Preseason favorites to win the Ohio Valley Conference, the Governors opened the season with nine consecutive losses. Injuries have played a part along the way. The Govs saw center John Fraley go down with a concussion in the opener and miss the next nine games. As he was coming back, preseason All-OVC forward Anthony Campbell went down for the season with a knee injury for a second straight year.

Morehead State Earns OVC’s Third NCAA Tournament Win in as Many Years 

Ohio Valley ConferenceDenver, CO – On the verge of seeing his unheralded, 13th-seeded Morehead State program turn into something much more impressive, the coach could have called a play for his NBA-bound center or his guard who couldn’t miss.

Instead, he decided to go with a dream.

Executing a play that came to his coach the night before, Morehead State’s Demonte Harper dribbled patiently and watched the clock tick down. Then, he stepped up behind the 3-point line and swished the shot with 4.2 seconds left Thursday for a 62-61 victory over No. 4 Louisville and the first big upset of the NCAA tournament.

Austin Peay set to face nemesis Morehead State in key early-season OVC matchup

 

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Although Murray State is Austin Peay’s acknowledged rival, Morehead State certainly has proven to be its nemesis in recent times.

Those two clubs will square off 7:30pm, Tuesday night in Dave Aaron Arena as  the Governors close out pre-Christmas play with a key Ohio Valley Conference contest.

Until the Governors squeaked out a 56-55 thriller on a Justin Blake three pointer against the Eagles late last January, the Governors had lost four straight in the series, including a double-overtime 67-65 loss in the 2009 OVC title game.
