The Austin Peay Governors were not a team to overlook but still struggled to string wins together and are hoping they can in the conference playoffs. The Governors had lost back to back contests before knocking off SIU-Edwardsville as a 2.5 point road favorite. The Cougars sank shots at 43% including a 7-26 mark on threes that negated 15 more attempts while AP countered at 50% from the floor with 13 more free throws. Josh Robinson paced the Governors with a game high 22 points on 8-13 from the floor with Khalil Davis dropping 18 points on 6-9 shooting. Chris Horton added 15 points and nine rebounds while Jared Savage and Chris Porter-Bunton combined for 20 points.
