Austin Peay plays their second game in two days as they host Division III Berea College. A look at the matchup by the numbers.
4Austin Peay’s Chris Horton picked up where he left off last season, notching four blocks against the larger WKU. There were one especially impressive one in the first half, where Horton came from behind on a fastbreak after WKU’s full court press forced a turnover near mid-court.
16Austin Peay was edged on the glass, 35-33, but they turned nine offensive rebounds into 16 second-chance points, which is an impressive number. WKU’s head coach Ray Harper credited Austin Peay on their rebounding in his post-game press conference.
5-7Zavion Williams and Josh Robinson combined to hit five of their seven three-point attempts against Western Kentucky, as the Governors shot 50% as a team from behind the arc. The shot selection was excellent, and they were able to drain open looks. A good start for both guards.
60.0%They’re called free-throws. Free is in the name. Austin Peay hit 18-30 at the stripe, with Horton going just 3-8. You hit a few more — there’s a lot more pressure on WKU down the stretch of this one.
25As much as I though the refs needed to chill, you’ve go to adjust when you see the referees putting their whistles through a stress test. Austin Peay was called for 25 fouls in the loss to the Hilltoppers
