APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Give it to the Govs and head coach Dave Loos.

When they attempt to schedule exhibition games, they don’t necessary look for so called “cannon fodder.” The longtime Govs head coach understands exhibition games serve a useful purpose, displaying the respective strengths and weaknesses of a ballclub.

With eight newcomers mixing with six returnees, Loos knows he will find a lot of answers about his ballclub when Central Missouri comes to town to play the Govs in a 7:00pm, Thursday contest.

Central Missouri is one of Division II’s top programs, having spent much of the 2009-10 near the top or atop of the national rankings. Despite heavy losses, the Mules are ranked in the Top 20 in preseason polls this season. «Read the rest of this article»

APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay  State University’s basketball team showed some offensive potential in Sunday afternoon’s scrimmage.

The Black team rolled up 84 points and the White 66 as nine different players rolled up double-figures as the Governors prepare for Thursday’s 7:00pm, exhibition opener against Central Missouri.

“I think we were better offensively than defensively,” APSU coach Dave Loos said. “I was pleased in it is the first time where we ran the clock in a game-like situation, so I was concerned about how many points we could put in a 40-minute period.  What we did was acceptable, but at the same time I don’t think we were very good defensively.
