The first-ever meeting of the schools was a reunion of sorts for Spiders coach

The Falcons arrived ranked ninth nationally with an average of 9 3-pointers per game, but had just one in the first half while the Spiders had 10 on 15 attempts. Anthony was 5-for-6 and Brothers was 4-for-6.
The Spiders made 12 of their first 17 3-point tries and finished with a school-record 16 3-pointers in 26 tries, breaking the mark of 15 3s accomplished twice previously. In all, they shot 54.7 percent from the field (29 of 53), and 61.5 percent (16 of 26) from behind the arc.
Air Force finished just 4 for 14 on 3-pointers and shot 43.1 percent (22 of 51) overall.
In the second half, Anthony's three-point play got the scoring started again, and Brothers followed with a 3-pointer and a three-point play. It was the start of a 17-6 burst that made it a runaway, allowing Mooney to give some playing time to players who rarely see game action.
Air Force had scored six points in a row to get within 20-18 midway through the first half before Anthony caught fire.
