Fox Sports to televise govs games
October 23, 2000
Austin Peay's men's basketball team will not only receive national attention via ESPN, but it will also have a prominent place in regional television on Fox Sports Net South. The Govs will make three appearances on FSNS: Nov. 27 at Tennessee; Feb. 1 at Southeast Missouri and Feb. 6 at home against Murray State.
That schedule is in addition to their 11 a.m. home contest with Southeast Missouri, to be broadcast Jan. 6.
“It's an exciting time for everyone involved--players, coaches and fans--when we get this type of attention,” says APSU Coach Dave Loos. “As a coach, you strive year-in and year-out to put your program in that type of position.”
Last season the Govs appeared on Fox twice: Jan. 18 at Murray State and Feb. 19 at home in a contest with Tennessee Tech.
“This is great for our program and our University,” says Loos. “And it certainly helps in our recruiting efforts. “We can't afford the visibility and publication these games will generate.”
