CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Austin Peay State University’s Travis Betran was named the Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week.
The Kilgore College transfer connected on a trio of three pointers in his debut and authored the night’s most impressive dunk in tallying his first double-digit scoring performance as APSU won its season opener against Samford 75-64. He scored 13 points and provided suffocating defense in his debut.
The Harlem, N.Y., native also had two assists, rebounds and steals along the way.
Defensively, he played a key role in limiting Samford’s top perimeter threat, Raijon Kelly, to just 5-of-15 shooting from the floor.
Austin Peay will play its first road game, 7 p.m., Tuesday, against Western Kentucky as part of the Triple Crown Cancun Challenge.
