APSU Men’s Basketball 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsNashville, TN – If Austin Peay’s 6-0 Ohio Valley Conference start is the No. 1 league story so far in 2010-11 season. The second-best story undoubtedly is Tennessee State. 

Picked to finish seventh in the OVC preseason poll, the Tigers are off to an impressive 4-2 start, their only losses on the road at Eastern Illinois and Murray State, and they sit in a third-place tie. The Tigers, however, have an overtime decision against Morehead State on their resume this season. 

The Tigers will play host to the Governors, 3:00pm, Saturday, in the Gentry Center for an ESPNU audience. Second-year coach John Cooper has his young Tigers rapidly moving forward.
