Cape Girardeau, MO (Sports Network) - Corey Wilford scored 19 points as he helped lead the SE Missouri State Redhawks to an 86-84 win over the Governors of Austin Peay in Ohio Valley Conference play at the Show Me Center.

The Governors (4-11, 0-1) were paced by Travis Betran who tallied a game-high 30 points, the first 30-point game of the season for an Austin Peay player, who still suffered a seventh-straight setback.
