    UT-Chattanooga 76, Austin Peay 68

    CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Mindaugas Katelynas scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Chattanooga to a 76-68 victory over Austin Peay on Monday night.

    The Mocs (7-3) tied the game at 19 on a 3-point shot by A.J. Mastin with 11:44 left in the first half, then took the lead on another 3-pointer by Mastin at the 10:11 mark and never trailed again.

    Chris Brown scored 18 points, Casey Long 12 and Steve Cherry 10 for Chattanooga, which shot 56.8 percent from the field and dominated the boards 41-25.

    Maurice Hampton scored 20 points to lead the Governors (2-10), which lost its fourth straight game at home for the first time since the 1992-93 season, when they went 7-20.

    Anthony Davis scored 17 points for the Governors and Derek Wright added 10.

    After taking a 45-36 halftime lead, Chattanooga stretched its advantage to 53-38 with 16:06 left in the game after a 3-pointer by Katelynas.

    Austin Peay fought back and eventually pulled within 58-54 with 9:14 to play on a jumper by Davis.

    That would be as close as the Governors would get, with Chattanooga stretching its lead back to as many as 11 at 72-61 with 3:38 left to play.

    The Mocs' bench outscored Austin Peay's 27-8.
