Anthony Campbell added 14 points and seven rebounds while Thomas Greer managed 11 points off the bench.

Bakari Turner scored 19 points and led four teammates in double figures as the Eagles (8-9, 2-1) saw their three-game winning streak come to a close. Drew Kelly (16 points, five rebounds), Milton Chavis (15 points, five rebounds), and Maurice Lewis-Briggs (10 points, eight rebounds) all scored in double figures while Chad Posthumus recorded a double-double with 10 points and the same number of rebounds.

Austin Peay led 39-20 at halftime after holding the Eagles to 27.6 percent shooting in the first half while converting 45.2 percent of its own attempts from the floor.

In the second half, Morehead State outscored the Governors 52-33 and a layup by Kelly with two seconds left tied the game 77-77 to send it to overtime.

Throughout overtime, Austin Peay and Morehead State traded baskets until Betran hit a contested 3-pointer as time expired to give the Governors the decision.

Despite the loss, Morehead State held a 45-35 edge in the rebounding battle and outscored the Governors, 44-27, in points in the paint. Austin Peay survived by draining 21-of-29 at the charity stripe and 11-of-21 from beyond the arc.
