    CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Drake Reed scored 17 points and added 10 rebounds to lead Austin Peay to a 71-55 win over Jacksonville State on Saturday night.

    Reed's double-double extended Austin Peay's winning streak to five games and the Ohio Valley Conference champions improved to 9-6 overall and 5-0 in conference play.

    Nick Murphy scored 20 points for Jacksonville State (2-11, 0-5) and started a rally at the top of the second half with four lay-ups and a free throw tie it at 39-39 with 15:45 left.

    But Jacksonville State went on to shoot only 9-of-24 from the field in the second and was kept scoreless in the last 4:08 as Austin Peay sealed the win with 11 unanswered points.

    Fernandez Lockett and Derek Wright both added 13 for the Govs, who forced 17 turnovers while only committing four.
