CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Former Lincoln County High School standout Cassandra Peek will return to Kentucky to play Thursday when Austin Peay takes on Eastern Kentucky at 5:30 p.m. in Richmond.
Peek and Austin Peay (8-5, 2-0 Ohio Valley Conference) lost to Kentucky in Lexington last month.
Peek starts at point guard and played a key role in Austin Peay's recent 54-47 win over OVC rival Eastern Illinois.
"Peek has a lot of guts. She is what we want our point guard to be. She steps up and makes big shots when it is time for her to do it, and at the same time runs the offense and does a good job with that," Austin Peay coach Andy Blackston told The Leaf-Chronicle of Clarksville after the Eastern Illinois win.
Austin Peay will also play at Morehead State at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
