Austin Peay held off North Florida ( 73-71) for a win in the last game of the regular season Saturday at the Dunn Center ending with multiple suspensions.

“I am disappointed with the behavior at the conclusion of (Saturday’s) game with North Florida. Our student-athletes are held to a higher standard, and (Saturday’s) behavior does not represent the ‘Total Gov Concept.’ Austin Peay and the ASUN Conference take pride in sportsmanship. That didn’t happen. We will work with the ASUN Conference to determine the appropriate path forward and respond accordingly,” said Austin Peay Vice President and Director of Athletics, Gerald Harrison.

Following his statement, Monday the ASUN Conference and Austin Peay State University’s Athletics Dept. announced that three suspensions would follow due to the conduct at the end of Saturday’s game.

The ASUN suspended Cameron Copeland, Carlos Paez, and Kamarie Coffey.

Suspension for these players will take place on Wednesday at Stetson.

ASPU has also announced Coffey would serve an additional game which will include Fridays game at Florida Gulf Coast.
