NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – As Vanderbilt University gets ready for their big NCAA Tournament game Tuesday night in Ohio, the Austin Peay Governors are in Des Moines, Iowa, getting ready for their own game.

The Governors found out over the weekend their first-round tournament game will be against the first-seed Kansas Jayhawks.

“It’s a tall order, great challenge, but we’re looking forward to the challenge. We ended the season playing with a lot of confidence and got a lot of momentum going, so we’re excited about it,” said head coach Dave Loos.

Kansas is favored to win the whole tournament, so it really is a tall order for the Governors.

The two teams take the court Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m.
