Greetings from Las Vegas.
The Air Force women’s basketball team lost in the first round of the Mountain West Conference Tournament here yesterday, falling to Utah, 63-40.
The men face Wyoming today in the play-in game of the men’s tournament. Here are 3 Things to Watch in the game. It could be the last for senior forward/center Grant Parker, who wants to go out with a better performance than he had in the Falcons’ final two regular season games.
Also, I spoke to Air Force athletic director Hans Mueh after yesterday’s women’s game about the men’s program and coach Jeff Reynolds. Mueh endorsed Reynolds. I’ll post some more excerpts from our conversation later today in the blog. Gazette columnist David Ramsey writes in his blog (http://daveramseysez.freedomblogging.com) that giving Reynolds a new contract after last season made no sense.
