Ten different players connected on a three-pointer as the Air Force Falcons had a great day from behind the arc to capture a 90-60 victory over the Western State Mountaineers Saturday afternoon in Colorado Springs. The Falcons improve to 3-1 on the season with a tough week on the road facing Air Force over the Thanksgiving week.

Air Force welcomed back Kamryn Williams after the senior forward sat out the Colorado Christian game with a minor injury. Williams led the team with 17 points, including a three-pointer, on his return. In fact, the Falcons played 17 players on the day with 15 of those players scoring. Senior guard Max Yon would chip in 11 points as the only other double digit scorer on the evening. The Falcons would shoot a blistering 71% on the night from three-point land for a total field goal percentage on the afternoon of 67%. The Falcons blitzed the Division II team from the start to cruise to the victory.

Air Force will step up the class of opponent this week though, as they travel to Boulder to take on the Colorado Buffaloes on Tuesday evening. The Buffaloes, who face Wyoming later today, are a deep and talented team led by junior forward Josh Scott and senior guard Askia Booker. The Falcons will need their hot shooting to continue, as the Buffaloes are big inside and will be a matchup problem for Air Force. Tip off is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday and can be seen on the Pac 12 Network.
