  • The Govs also won their season's first road game, now standing 1-10 in road tilts.
  • The Governors are now 1-4 in February while also recording their second 2013 victory.
  • APSU finally won its first Thursday game with the 71-64 win against Eastern Illinois. They are 1-4 on Thursdays this season.
  • For the second time in three games the Governors grabbed the rebound advantage. APSU out-rebounded EIU, 36-31.
  • For the first time since the Morehead State game, Jan. 9, the Govs finished shooting better than 50 percent from three-point range by going 9-of-17 against EIU.
  • The 18 first-half points by EIU were the fewest allowed by the Govs in the opening half this season.  The previous low was 20 by Morehead State, Jan. 9.
  • The Govs are now 4-1 when holding opponents to fewer than 70 points.
  • Anthony Campbell's 24 points represented his eighth 20-point outing this season and 14th for his career.
  • Campbell's five three pointers matched his career best-he also had five at Illinois State.
  • With five points, Travis Betran saw his streak of 13 straight double-figure scoring game end.
  • However, Betran continued his scorching OVC free throw shooting-he is 48 of 52 (92.3 percent)-after going 2-of-2, both coming in the final minute of play.
  • APSU's leading and third leading scorers, Travis Betran and Will Triggs, who were averaging more than 30 points per game entering the contest, combined for just 11 points against EIU.
  • Junior guard Jeremy Purvis, who had relinquished his starting point guard position to senior Jerome Clyburn three games ago, scored a career-best 11 points on a perfect shooting night. He was three-for-three from the floor, including a pair of three pointers, and he also was a perfect 3-for-3 at the free-throw line.
  • Freshman forward Chris Horton recorded his season's sixth double-double by scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. He also had two blocks and two steals.
  • After significantly reducing turnovers in early December, the Governors have returned to their disturbing early season trend with 16 or more turnovers in the last three games. The Govs had 18 against Eastern Illinois.
