No. 15 New Mexico topples Air Force 81-58

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Jamal Fenton scored all five of his points in a late surge for No. 15 New Mexico to help the Lobos beat Air Force 81-58 on Wednesday.

With New Mexico (20-3, 7-1 Mountain West) leading 57-51, Fenton started a 14-1 run with a time-clock beating, turnaround floater from the lane.

All five Lobos' starters finished in double figures, with Tony Snell, Cameron Bairstow and Alex Kirk all scoring 14 points.

Bairstow added nine rebounds and Kirk had eight to help the Lobos control the boards with a 39-24 advantage, including 13-4 on the offensive side.

Those two players also helped New Mexico to a 30-16 scoring edge in the paint and a 14-2 edge on second-chance points.

Mike Fitzgerald and Michael Lyons each scored 16 points for the Falcons (14-7, 5-3).

Air Force used a 9-3 run, capped by a 3-pointer from Kyle Green with 9:15 remaining before New Mexico took off on its big run.
