Air Force Falcons basketball notes:
The Falcons are tops in the nation in scoring defense, allowing under 54 points per game. The lack of turnovers and the ability to dictate tempo is always a dangerous combination in March and that should have the Falcons ready for a win. Antoine Hood is great scorer and Jacob Burtschi, Dan Nwaelele and Matt McCraw aren’t far behind. Nwaelele and McCraw are stellar long range shooters and need to contained by the opposition. The biggest advantage for Air Force is still their ability to dictate tempo. If it’s a low scoring, grind it out game, the Falcons can win.
