USAFA, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Tyler Johnson scored 20 points and pulled down eight rebounds as the Fresno State Bulldogs claimed a 68-51 win over the Air Force Falcons in Mountain West Conference action at Clune Arena.

Cezar Guerrero accounted for 18 points for the Bulldogs (10-13, 3-7 MWC), followed by Marvelle Harris with 12 points, eight boards and four steals for a squad that has now won two straight.

The Falcons (9-12, 3-7), losers of five straight and seven of the last eight, were led by Marek Olesinski with 17 points and eight rebounds, but he was the only player in double figures for the Academy.

Air Force led by as many as four points in the first half, but the team ended up converting only 6-of-26 (.231) from the field and fell behind by double figures at the break, 29-19. The Bulldogs connected on 37.5 percent from the floor and a mere 4-of-16 behind the 3-point line through the first 20 minutes of action.

The Falcons, who cleared just eight offensive rebounds and were forced into 20 turnovers, continue to play without leading scorer Tre' Coggins (17.4 ppg) who has been suspended due to disciplinary issues.
