Recap


MURRAY STATE 82, AUSTIN PEAY 63: Isaiah Canaan scored a game-high 23 points as No. 7 Murray State rebounded from its first loss of the season and clinched at least a share of its third straight Ohio Valley Conference regular season title.

The host Racers (24-1, 12-1 OVC) got off to a sluggish start, showing the effects of Thursday's loss to Tennessee State, before using two dominating runs, one in each half, to put away the rival Governors (9-18, 6-7).

Leading 19-12 midway through the first half, Murray State used a 9-0 run to go up 28-12.  The Racers, who would build the lead to 21, settled for a 37-24 halftime advantage. Murray State left no doubt coming out of the locker room, scoring the first 11 points of the second half to double up Austin Peay for a 48-24 lead. The Racers shot 61 percent from the field in the second half, hitting 14 of 23.

Canaan, who also dished out six assists, was joined in double figures by Jewuan Long and Ivan Aska with 12 points apiece and Stacy Wilson, who chipped in 10.

Austin Peay, which dropped its fourth straight, was led by Alton Williams, who came in during the second half and scored all 15 of his points on five 3-pointers. John Fraley and Josh Terry added 13 apiece.
