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.
