The Air Force men’s basketball team faces UNLV tonight in Las Vegas, trying to snap a 21-game losing streak in Mountain West Conference regular season games.
Despite that losing streak, athletic director Hans Mueh tells Gazette columnist David Ramsey he has confidence in head coach Jeff Reynolds – see Ramsey’s column here.
As for tonight’s game, here are my 3 Things to Watch. One other thing to keep an eye on is the perimeter shooting of the Falcons’ big men – Air Force’s offense would benefit greatly if they could knock a few down.
One gloomy stat for the season: Air Force is 8-10 overall. Of those eight victories, six came against Division I programs, and just two of those programs had winning records heading into today – Charleston Southern (10-9) and Prairie View A&M (10-8).
The other four teams have a combined record of 25-56.
