Evan Washington scored seven of his 14 points in overtime to lead Air Force in a 74-66 win over Wofford on Wednesday night.

The Falcons (3-1) went 4 for 4 from the field and scored eight of the first 10 points in the extra period to win their first game on an opponents' home court since a 71-64 victory at Northern Colorado on Dec. 6, 2007.

Noah Dahlman's layup pulled Wofford (2-4) within 64-61 with 1:36 left, but Taylor Broekhuis made a layup and the Falcons went 6 of 10 from the free-throw line the rest of the way to seal it.

Michael Lyons and Tom Fow scored 18 points each for the Falcons, who led for 41 of the game's 45 minutes.


Air Force led 55-50 before a 6-1 Terriers' run sent it into overtime. After Washington made one of two free throws, Wofford's Jamar Diggs hit a jumper to tie it at 56 with 16 seconds left in regulation.

Diggs finished with 20 points.
