COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Marcus Bailey scored 20 points and Wyoming blocked four shots in a 51-48 victory over Air Force on Saturday.

Bailey was 8-of-10 from the field, including a driving layup on a broken play with 27 seconds left that put Wyoming (18-6, 9-2 Mountain West Conference) up 50-46.

Bailey was 3-of-3 on 3-pointers.

Air Force (9-15, 3-8) was 6-of-10 on 3 pointers in the first half and led 30-26 at the break after a 3-pointer by A.J. Kuhl.

Tom Bellairs led the Falcons with 13 points.

The Cowboys switched defensive assignments frequently and used their size advantage if the Falcons got the ball inside.

Uche Nsonwu-Amadi Nsonwu-Amadi had two of Wyoming's four blocks and finished with 13 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.

Air Force's perimeter shooting cooled in the second half.

A jumper by Bailey put the Cowboys up 46-41 with 4:17 left.
