The streak continues.

 

In absolutely excruciating fashion.

 

Air Force fell apart down the stretch and lost to Colorado State, 71-66, on Saturday in front of an announced crowd of 3,675 at Clune Arena.

 

The Falcons led, 61-55, when Andrew Henke hit a 3-pointer with 8:28 left. But they scored just five points the rest of the way – going approximately seven-and-a-half minutes without a field goal.

 

The loss was Air Force’s 14th in a row – matching the longest in program history – and 15th in its last 16 games. The Falcons, who lost at home for the eighth straight time, fell to 9-16 and 0-13 in the Mountain West Conference. Colorado State, which went winless in league play a year ago, improved to 9-18 and 4-9.
