On Monday, the Austin Peay women’s basketball schedule was released as head coach Carrie Daniels will look to bounce back from a (7-21, 2-14) record from last season.
The Lady Govs will host Martin Methodist in an exhibition contest on Nov. 3, then travel to Western Kentucky for the first regular season game on Nov. 9.
After a trip to Southern Illinois three days later, the team will stay close to home as four of their next five games will be played in the Dunn Center — Arkansas State, Evansville, Central Arkansas, and Middle Tennessee — with the lone away game in the stretch being played in Nashville against Lipscomb.
Following the match-up against MTSU, who played in the NCAA Tournament last season, Austin Peay will face their biggest test of the season as they travel to Louisville to take on the runner-up in the 2013 NCAA Championship on Dec. 14. The string of quality opponents continues from there as Chattanooga — NCAA Tourney member from last season — comes to town on Dec. 18.
Before a break to take time off for Christmas, the Lady Govs will take part in Wichita State Christmas Classic, playing the Shockers on Dec. 21 and Nebraska-Omaha the next day.
The first game after break will be a road game against Southeastern Conference member Mississippi State on Dec. 30 before the meaningful games begin.
Ohio Valley Conference play tips off on Jan. 4 at home against Southeast Missouri that will be one of the 16 conference match-ups on the schedule.
If the Lady Govs are able to have success during the 16-game stretch, the OVC Tournament from the Municipal Auditorium will await them on March 5-8.
