The Liberty Flames are playing some impressive ball at both ends of the floor, but the Austin Peay Governors are being a little overlooked in this contest. Austin Peay has been a consistent offensive team all season long, and its shooting a very high percentage during this five-game winning streak. This is a game the Governors should be able to hang around in and possibly steal late. I want the points.
