LEXINGTON, Va. -- Air Force was hot from the 3-point line and Army was not in the Falcons' 79-68 season-opening victory on Friday in the All-Military Classic at VMI.
The Falcons hit 10 of 15 3-pointers for 66.7 percent. The Black Knights threw up a program-record 44 shots from beyond the arc but made only 12 for 27.3 percent.
Army held Air Force without a field goal for the final 6:02 of the first half to take 30-28 lead. But Air Force caught the Black Knights after Yon scored nine straight points, including a 3-pointer with 10:29 left to tie it at 49. Williams' layup, seconds later, gave the Falcons the lead for good.
Army freshman Tanner Omlid scored 18 points.
