Falcons Fall to Broncos on the Road
Feb. 11, 2012
BOISE, Idaho - Junior Alicia Leipprandt (Ubly, Mich.) scored a game-high 22 points, but the Air Force women's basketball team dropped an 83-59 decision to Boise State Saturday afternoon at Taco Bell Arena.
Dymond James (Jr., Brambleton, Va.) added 17 points for the Falcons, while sophomore Megan O'Neil (Aurora, Colo.) also scored in double figures, registering 10 points. Nicole Brady led four Broncos in double figures, finishing with 16 points.
The Falcons (5-19, 0-9), who committed 15 turnovers in the opening half, went into the intermission trailing 36-24. Air Force's deficit grew to 18 points in the first three minutes of the second period, before the Falcons went on a run, cutting the margin to 53-49 with 11:15 remaining. However, Boise State (13-11, 4-5) knocked down three consecutive three-pointers to regain momentum.
The Broncos were aided by hot shooting from long range, knocking down nine three-pointers, including seven in the second half. Boise State also had a slight edge at the free throw line and outrebounded Air Force, 41-34.
The Falcons are back in action on Wednesday, Feb. 15, when they host Wyoming in a 7:00 p.m. contest.
