USAFA — The historic season continues for the Air Force women's basketball team.

The Falcons defeated Boise State on Tuesday night, 77 to 63, in large part due to senior Riley Snyder's season-high 26 points on 11-13 shooting from the field, including 4-6 from three-point range. 22 of Snyder's 26 points came before halftime.

Snyder's performance places her 34 points shy of Kaelin Immel's Division I program scoring record, and she has 4 regular season games remaining.

The win also gives Air Force the most Mountain West Conference wins in their program's history with 8.

Haley Jones was again a force on the low block, putting up 10 points and snagging 14 rebounds. Tonight's win marks Jones' fourth double-double of the season, as well as her third in the last six games.

Air Force will celebrate their five seniors, the most in Chris Gobrecht's tenure, on Saturday against Utah State for senior day. Tip-off is scheduled 1:00 pm MT.
