Michael Lyons scored 26 points and Air Force rode an 18-0

Saturday afternoon.

Lyons was 7 of 15 from the field, including three 3-pointers.

Mike Fitzgerald added 13 points for the Falcons (7-2), and Taylor

Broekhuis had six points and seven rebounds.

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.
