COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Tyler Johnson scored 20 points and Cezar Guerrero added 18 as Fresno State took advantage of several scoring runs to beat Air Force 68-51 on Wednesday night.

Fresno State (10-13, 3-7 Mountain West) capitalized on Air Force's 4 minute and 19 second shooting drought late in the first half to take off on an 8-0 run and lead 29-19 at the break.

The Falcons (9-12, 3-7) climbed within six after Hayden Graham made a 3-pointer, but the Bulldogs quickly responded with a 10-0 run to shoot ahead by 14 points with 5:04 left to play.

Marek Olesinski scored four 3-pointers on 6-of-13 shooting to lead Air Force and finished with 17 points. The Falcons went the final 2 minutes without a basket as Fresno State closed out the game with nine uncontested points.
