    Provo, Utah - After scoring just six points in the opening half, the Air Force women's basketball team fell to BYU, 70-40, Thursday evening at the Marriott Center. The Falcons drop to 4-17 overall, 0-10 in the Mountain West Conference, while the Cougars improve to 17-5 overall, 8-1 in the MWC.

    BYU led by six points early in the game before a jumper from Air Force sophomore Kim Kreke (Salem, Ill.) brought the Falcons within four points at 10-6. However, Air Force was held scoreless for the final 15:21 of the opening half, and went into the locker room trailing 33-6.

    The Cougars extended their advantage after the break, leading by as many as 42 points. Although Air Force outscored BYU 20-9 in the final 10 minutes, it was not enough to overcome its early deficit, as the Falcons fell 70-40.

    Although the Falcons entered the game as the league's top offensive rebounding team, the Cougars had a huge advantage on the boards, outrebounding the Falcons, 43-32, and grabbing 18 boards on the offensive end.

    Junior Jamie Davis (Fresno, Calif.) was the lone Falcon scoring in double-figures, finishing with 10 points, while senior Andrea Taylor (Sugar Grove, Ill.) added eight points.
