Guard Matt Mooney scored a game-high 20 points, and the Air Force Falcons snapped a five-game losing streak with a 66-52 victory over the San Jose State Spartans on Wednesday at the Event Center in San Jose, Calif.

The Falcons (9-11, 2-7 Mountain West) won for the first time since a 78-56 home win over the Spartans on Jan. 7.

San Jose State (2-18, 0-8) absorbed its 10th loss in a row. Only once in that span, in a home defeat against Wyoming, did the Spartans finish within 10 points of their opponent. Neither of the Spartans’ wins this season came against a Division I team.

Air Force forward Hayden Graham scored 16 points and grabbed a team-high six rebounds. Falcons guard Trevor Lyons added 11 points.

Spartans forward Jaleel Williams scored 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds. San Jose State guard Darryl Gaynor contributed 15 points, and guard Rashad Muhammad had 11 points.

Air Force shot 42.2 percent from the floor, while San Jose State shot 38.6 percent.

Behind 10 points apiece from Graham and Mooney, the Falcons led 29-23 at halftime. Muhammad topped the Spartans with 11 first-half points, while Williams had seven points before the break.

Air Force plays at UNLV on Saturday, the same day San Jose State plays at New Mexico.
