Gumm leads the Governors in scoring this year with 13.8 PPG, and Terry Taylor is right there with 13.5 PPG and 7.0 RPG. the only other Austin Peay player averaging in double-digits right now is Averyl Ugba, with 11.5 PPG and 5.7 RPG.
As for Oklahoma State, they’re currently 5-1 on the year. The Cowboys’ lone blemish this year is a loss to Texas A&M, but since then they’ve beaten Pitt and Houston Baptist. In that most recent game, OSU’s top scorers were Kendall Smith and Thomas Dziagwa, each with 16 points.

The Governors are 5-0 ATS in their last five Wednesday games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. Austin Peay is also 7-2 ATS in their last nine road games and 1-4 ATS in the last five versus the Big 12.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a straight-up win and 4-1 ATS in their last five versus Ohio Valley. Oklahoma State is also 7-2 ATS in their last nine non-conference games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall.
After stumbling out of the gate against a couple of tough teams on the road, the Governors have gotten it going with wins in three of four—and the one loss was by three in OT. Oklahoma, meanwhile, couldn’t hang with Texas A&M but generally they’ve taken care of business where they’re supposed to. I like the Cowboys to come out with another strong effort here and cover.
