Air Force vs. Richmond final score: Falcons get stomped by Spiders, 91-68

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Air Force had a pretty bad first half and never recovered against Richmond on the road Wednesday night.

The Air Force Falcons lost their second game in a row on Wednesday night after being blown out by the Richmond Spiders, 91-68, on the road.

Air Force (8-4 overall) couldn't get off the runway early, falling behind 17-10 early on in the first half, and from there they could never really rebound. At halftime the Falcons trailed, 48-30.

Richmond (10-5 overall) was scorching from the three-point line, burying 16 treys in 26 attempts as they improved their record at home to 8-1 this season. Sophomore guard Kendall Anthony drilled seven of those three-pointers for the Spiders, pouring in 31 points. Senior guard Darien Brothers contributed 25 points, shooting 7 of 11 from the field, including six three-pointers of his own. Brothers and Anthony were Richmond's only two players to score in double figures.

As a team, the Spiders shot 54.7 percent from the floor compared to Air Force's team shooting percentage of 43.1. Additionally, the Falcons only made four three-pointers, shooting 28.6 percent from behind the arc.

Guard Michael Lyons led the Falcons with 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting, as all but one member of Air Force's roster got into the scoring column, but no one other than Lyons reached double-digits.
