Utah Beats Air Force By 21

By  | 

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Utah's Lawrence Borha scored 15 points and Air Force shot a season-low 23.8 percent from the field (10-42) as the visiting Utes handed the Falcons their third consecutive loss, 57-36, Wednesday night.

Nothing went right for Air Force (9-7 overall, 0-3 Mountain West Conference), which has now dropped five of its last six games. The Falcons, who entered the game as the nation's third-best 3-point shooting team, connected on just 2-19 shots from behind the arc and missed 14 consecutive 3-point attempts after starting the game 1-2.

Utah (11-6, 2-1) used a 12-0 run midway through the first half to open a double-digit lead and held a 31-14 advantage at the half.

The Utes held the Falcons without a field goal for 18:31 - nearly half the game - from midway through the first half until the 13:07 mark in the second half.

Anwar Johnson paced Air Force with eight points.
