Air Force Vs. UNLV Score Update: Falcons Fall To Runnin' Rebels

Air Force knew that it would have to take care of the ball against UNLV's pressure defense in order to pull off the upset against the No.20 ranked team in the country. Unfortunately, the Falcons were unable to take advantage of an excellent defensive effort, as they committed 20 turnovers in a 68-58 loss.

The only two players that were able to get anything going offensively for the Falcons were Michael Lyons and Kyle Green, who combined to score 35 points. Lyons led the way with a team-high 18 points on 9/20 shooting and also grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. Green was the only other player to score in double-figures, as he finished with 17 points, including 5/7 shooting from behind the three-point line.

Anthony Marshall continued his excellent play in the backcourt for UNLV, scoring 15 points, grabbing seven boards and dishing out five assists in the win. Chace Stanback scored a game-high 21 points on 7/15 shooting from the field.
