AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Michael Lyons scored 15 points and Air Force put cold-shooting Wright State away in the first half Wednesday night in a 55-34 victory.

Air Force made 9 of 25 3-pointers.

Cole Darling led Wright State (3-6) with seven points. Julius Mays had six for the Raiders, losers of four of their last five and all three of their road games this season.

Wright State shot a season-low 20 percent from the field.

Air Force's defense smothered the Raiders in the first half, limiting them to 19 percent shooting, in building a 27-13 lead at the break. Wright State missed nine straight shots in one stretch.
