Wright State Vs. Air Force: Falcons Try To End Two-Game Losing Skid

The Air Force Falcons hope that they can end a two-game losing streak against a struggling Wright State team on Wednesday night.

The Air Force Falcons started off the season nicely by winning their first three games, but they followed that streak up with consecutive losses. On Wednesday night, they hold Wright State as they hope to end that losing streak and gain some momentum for a Dec. 22 match-up against Gonzaga, currently ranked No. 22 in the nation.

A 3-2 record on the year is actually probably a tad disappointing for Air Force these days, particularly given how those two losses came about. Colorado beat them in overtime 76-73 after Mike Fitzgerald had made two free throws with three seconds left in regulation to tie the game on Nov. 23, and then they nearly made an incredible comeback but came short in a 70-68 loss to Drake a few days ago.

Wright State shouldn't pose a major threat, though, as they're 3-5 on the year and had lost four consecutive games before beating Youngstown State by a single point on Dec. 3. Outside of that win, their other two wins are against a 1-7 Jackson State team and Division III Kenyon College.
