Air Force Basketball logs biggest win in years over #12 New Mexico

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Todd Fletcher hit a 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds remaining to give Air Force an 89-88 victory over No. 12 New Mexico on Saturday.

Tony Snell's 3-point attempt from the right wing clanged off the iron as time expired, and Falcons fans stormed the court to celebrate the program's first win over a top 12 team. Fletcher's clutch shot came seconds after New Mexico's Kendall Williams missed the back end of a 1-and-1.

The loss snapped an eight-game winning streak for the Lobos (26-5, 13-3 Mountain West) and marked the second win over a Top 25 opponent for Air Force (17-12, 8-8) this season. The Falcons finished 13-2 at Clune Arena.

The game was a back-and-forth sprint, with the teams combining for a conference-record 30 3-pointers. Air Force was 15 of 31 from 3-point range, with New Mexico going 15 for 33.

The score was tied 47-all at halftime.
