AIR FORCE ACADEMY , Colo. (AP) - Michael Lyons scored all of his game-high 17 points in the first half Saturday as Air Force snapped a three-game losing skid with a 72-51 win over Wyoming.

Tom Fow added 14 points for the Falcons (11-7, 2-3 Mountain West), who hit 11 of 19 3-pointers and had 22 assists in the game. Todd Fletcher had 13 points and Evan Washington had 11 points and nine assists.

Amath M'Baye led the Cowboys (8-11, 1-4) with 13 points, and Francisco Cruz added 10. Wyoming struggled from beyond the arc, hitting just 4 of 23 attempts.
