Air Force followed its worst performance of the season – well, worst performance since the loss to Colorado College – with a hustling, inspiring rout of Colorado State.
CSU marched into Clune with a strange strategy. The Rams shot an endless array of 3-pointers, which makes no sense. Instead of pounding the ball inside against Air Force’s undersized defense, CSU repeatedly fired away – and missed – from long range.
Still, this was the most impressive win of the Jeff Reynolds era at Air Force. The Falcons played suffocating defense and intelligent offense.
