AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) -- Todd Fletcher led four Air Force players in double figures with 15 points, and Kamryn Williams had his first career double-double to lead the Falcons to a 67-50 victory over Texas-Pan American on Monday night.
Williams tied his career high with 11 points and grabbed a career-best 10 rebounds.
Air Force (10-4) survived another slow start, trailing by seven in the first half against the Broncs (5-14).
Fletcher hit a 3-pointer 32 seconds into the second half to give Air Force a 28-27 lead, which it never relinquished. The Falcons used a 10-0 run at the 11-minute mark to turn a two-possession lead into a double-digit advantage.
Brandon Provost led the Broncs with a game-high 17 points.
Air Force had a nightmarish first half, hitting 2 of 11 3-pointers and missing five layups. Texas-Pan American started 5-for-6 from beyond the arc but led just 27-25 at the break.
