AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Michael Lyons scored 17 points and Tom Fow added 14 to lead Air Force to a 66-53 win over the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Sunday.

The Falcons, playing their season opener, ran their series record against UCCS to 7-0 in a game that counted as an exhibition for the Division II Mountain Lions.

Air Force led by as many as 27 in the second half before UCCS cut the lead to 62-51 with 2:16 remaining, but it wasnt enough. The Mountain Lions were 1-for-14 from 3-point range for the game and shot just 34 percent from the field.

Brent Jones led Colorado-Colorado Springs with 13 points, while Rob Howe had 12 and J.T. Isaac 10.

The Falcons held the Mountain Lions to 19.2 percent shooting in the first half and led 32-15 at the break.
