Posted: Updated:

Ryan Manning scored 19 points, Pervis Louder 14 including a game-winning dunk with four seconds left as Air Force squeaked past Denver 61-59 on Saturday.

Louder added a 3-pointer with 51 seconds remaining but Denver tied at 59-all on two Jake Holtzmann free throws before Louder's emphatic dunk for the win.
  
Amigo finished with 11 points, as did Joe Rosga. Holtzmann added 10. Amigo and Holtzmann combined for 11 of Denver's 23 turnovers
