Western State vs. Air Force final score: Falcons cruise to victory, defeat Mountaineers 102-68

Ethan Miller

Air Force had no issues defeating Division II Western State on Thursday night.

The Air Force Falcons improved to 3-0 on the year as they easily defeated Division II Western State Mountaineers 102-68 on Thursday night. This win was expected, however the Falcons only held a 10-point lead at the half. The second half is when they pulled away to win by 34 points.

The three-point shot was falling for Air Force as they made 11 of 26 from behind the arc, and they shot well from the field overal by converting 52 percent of their shots. The margin of victory could have been more since Air Force made only 23 of 37 from the free throw line.

The Air Force defense had a nice showing as they held Western State to 43 percent from the field, but that percentage was low due to the Mountaineers resorting to shooting three pointers to get back in the game.

The Falcons unloaded their bench in the win as 15 players saw time Thursday night, and the team was led by Taylor Broekhuis who scored 23 points. The most impressive performance came from the end of bench was freshman Cam Michael who scored 18 points in just 18 minutes.
