At times during Air Force’s dismal and ever-growing losing streak, the Falcons at least have appeared to be getting better.
Wednesday night at TCU was not one of those times.
A reeling Horned Frogs squad that had lost six straight played better but hardly was unbeatable. The Falcons, however, did plenty to beat themselves in a 62-50 loss.
Air Force, which fell to 9-16 and 0-12 in Mountain West Conference play, made 14 turnovers, missed a handful of layups – some of which were uncontested – and gave up 40 points in the second half.
Air Force now has lost 13 games in a row and 14 of its last 15. The Falcons need to beat Colorado State on Saturday to avoid matching the longest losing streak in program history, which took place during the 1993-94 season.
For the third game in a row and fifth time in league play, Air Force took a lead into halftime.
