AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Michael Lyons scored 26 points and Air Force rode an 18-0 second-half run to a 65-49 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Saturday afternoon.
Davon Haynes had 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds for the Golden Lions (1-8), who scored the first 12 points of the game and led 31-25 at halftime. But after Tevin Hammond's fast-break layup with 17:17 to play, UAPB didn't score again until Haynes' two free throws with 9:49 left.
By then, Air Force had scored 18 unanswered points -- eight of them by Lyons -- to lead 48-35. The Falcons cruised from there.
