The Air Force men’s basketball team just played one of the best halves it has played all season and went to the locker room with a 32-21 halftime lead.
Air Force shot the ball well (13-of-26 from the floor, including 4-of-12 from 3-point range), played inspired defense and – perhaps most noteworthy – was energized and excited. The bench was into it, the Falcons were diving on the floor for loose balls and players were taking the ball to the hole with authority.
Question is – can they sustain the effort in the second half?
Not sure if Wyoming will play as poorly. The Cowboys had seven turnovers and missed 7-of-13 free throws.
