AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. -- Todd Fletcher scored 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting including three 3-pointers and dished out five assists to lead Air Force to a 62-50 victory over Fresno State on Wednesday night.
Air Force (13-6, 4-2 Mountain West) trailed 13-10 mid-way through the first half but used a 20-10 run capped off by Fletcher's half-court 3-pointer at the buzzer to take a 30-23 lead at halftime. The Falcons never trailed again.
Michael Lyons added 15 points and four rebounds for Air Force, which shot an even 50 percent from the field and outscored the Bulldogs 26-12 in the paint. Mike Fitzgerald added seven points and 10 rebounds.
Olekaibe and Huddleston were part of a Fresno State (7-13, 1-6) bench which outscored the Falcons' bench 34-12.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
