AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Drew Gordon and Kendall Williams both scored 13 points in limited duty as New Mexico handed Air Force its worst home loss ever, 81-42 Tuesday night.
With their third straight win, the Lobos (18-4, 4-2) moved within a half-game of Mountain West co-leaders No. 11 UNLV and No. 17 San Diego State, the two schools that handed them early losses in conference play.
The Falcons (11-9, 1-5) lost their fifth straight. Their previous worst loss at home was by 38 points in a 90-52 loss to BYU last Feb. 9.
Phillip McDonald and Demetrius Walker each added 11 points for the Lobos, who led by as many as 44 points.
