Austin Peay built a 13-5 lead and never trailed. Adams' 6-0 run on a jumper and a pair of layups made it 23-12 with 6:11 before halftime. The Governors led 35-24 at intermission, and a 10-6 stretch to start the second half pushed the lead to 15.
Jr. Clay's layup with 5:22 left brought the Golden Eagles within 58-53 to cap a 21-7 outburst in a nine-minute span but they never got closer.
The Governors have won three straight and five of seven.
Clay led the Golden Eagles (3-13, 0-3) with 20 points and Darius Allen 10.
