AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) - Air Force senior Andrew Henke could not connect on a potential game-tying 3-pointer with four seconds remaining as Wyoming defeated the Falcons 65-62 Saturday at Clune Arena.

The Falcons had another chance to tie the game after Wyoming's Afam Muojeke missed a pair of free throws with two seconds remaining, but the final buzzer sounded as senior Matt Holland lined up for a 3-point attempt in front of the Air Force bench.

Wyoming's Sean Ogirri scored 20 of his game-high 23 points in the first half and Brandon Ewing added 23 of his own for the Cowboys (18-10, 7-7 Mountain West Conference). The loss was the 15th consecutive defeat for the Falcons (9-18, 0-14).

Henke led Air Force with 23 points, while Holland had 20.
