SAN DIEGO (AP) - D.J. Gay scored 20 points and Billy White had 10 of his 12 during a decisive 13-3 run, and No. 6 San Diego State beat Air Force 68-55 on Wednesday night to extend the country's longest active winning streak to a school-record 20 games.
The Aztecs (20-0, 5-0 Mountain West) remain one of three unbeaten teams in Division I. They are off until a showdown at conference rival and ninth-ranked BYU next Wednesday night.
Tom Fow scored 21 points for Air Force (10-7, 1-3).
Sophomore forward Kawhi Leonard had 10 points and 10 rebounds for SDSU, his 13th double-double this season and 30th of his career.
Air Force stuck around long enough to make the Aztecs to earn it, which they did over the final 7½ minutes. The Falcons got consecutive 3-pointers from Fow and Derek Brooks to pull to 48-44 before suddenly going cold.
