LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Tyler Johnson scored 19 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in the final two minutes, as Fresno State defeated Air Force 61-59 in a Mountain West Conference tournament quarterfinal game Wednesday.
The victory over the 10th-seeded Falcons sent the seventh-seeded Bulldogs (17-15) into a Thursday semifinal with No. 20 New Mexico (24-6).
