CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- Terry Taylor scored 22 points with four 3-pointers and Austin Peay dispatched SIU-Edwardsville 80-45 on Thursday night.
The Governors (17-7, 9-2 Ohio Valley Conference) raced to a 33-5 lead as Taylor scored 18 of their points with nine coming from beyond the 3-point arc.
Austin Peay led 42-18 at the break on 18-of-36 shooting. Taylor had 20 by halftime. SIU-Edwardsville (8-15, 4-7) missed 19 of their first 25 shots and turned it over 11 times before intermission.
