Anderson, Henke each score 5 points in OT for Air Force win
AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP)—With Tim Anderson and Andrew Henke each scoring five points in overtime, Air Force overcame cold shooting in the first half to post a 52-47 win over Radford Monday.
The game was tied 42-42 at the end of regulation time after Evan Washington hit a pair of free throws for Air Force with three seconds remaining.
Henke finished with 14 points, including a three-pointer with 3 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 40. Amir Johnson gave the lead back to Radford on a 10-foot jumper at 42-40 with 6 seconds remaining, setting the stage for Washington’s game-tying free throws.
Anderson and Washington had nine points each.
Martell McDuffy had 15 for the Highlanders and Johnson and Joey Lynch Flohr each had 12.
Radford took advantage of the dismal Air Force first-half shooting to build its lead to 22-12 at the intermission.
As Force struggled to find the basket, the Highlanders built up a 19-2 lead at the 7:50 mark and shortly extended that to 21-3. With Joey Lynch-Flohr leading Radford scorers during that stretch, Air Force went 1 for 17 from the field.
The only points for the Falcons came off a tip-in by Keith Maren, early in the game and a free throw by Anwar Johnson.
The Falcons began to bounce back late in the half, converting eight consecutive shots. They scored the first six points of the second half.
The 12 first-half points are the fewest scored by Air Force in a half since a 2004 game against Brigham Young, and two short of the record low of 10 in a half.
Air Force, under first-year coach Jeff Reynolds, is 4-0 on the season. Radford is 1-4.
