    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Playing on a heavily taped ankle, Dairese Gary had 17 points and seven assists in his final home game to lead New Mexico to a 66-61 victory over Air Force on Saturday.

    Gary, who made 11 of 13 free-throw attempts for the Lobos (20-11, 8-8 Mountain West), turned his right ankle midway through the first half, and the three minutes it took to be taped up accounted for all of his time off the court.

    The Falcons (15-14, 6-10) led for most of the first half, but New Mexico opened the second half with a 15-5 run to go up 46-38, with Gary scoring five points during the surge. The Lobos never trailed again.

    Derek Brooks scored 17 points for Air Force, which had a chance to tie the game in the final moments, trailing 64-61. However, Brooks' 3-point attempt with 10 seconds left missed, and a put-back attempt by Michael Lyons rolled off the rim.
