Charleston, SC (Sports Network) - Michael Lyons scored a career-high 33 points as the Air Force Falcons defeated The Citadel Bulldogs, 77-70, in the championship game of the All-Military Classic at McAlister Field House.

Lyons connected on 11-of-16 field goals, including seven three pointers, for the Falcons (2-0), who won the tournament for the second-consecutive year. Kyle Green chipped in with 18 points on 4-of-9 from three-point range, and Max Yon added 10 points from off the bench.

For The Citadel (1-1), Lawrence Miller scored 20 points and drained six three- pointers. Mike Groselle tallied 17 points and eight rebounds, and C.J. Bray added 14 points and five boards.

The Falcons scored the first eight points of the game, but the Bulldogs eventually took a 30-28 lead into halftime. The Citadel connected on 52.9 percent of its shots in the opening frame, but its lead could have been larger considering it committed 11 turnovers in the first 20 minutes.
