Air Force 56, Navy 43: The Falcons (8-4) used a stifling zone defense and a barrage of backdoor layups to defeat the Midshipmen (4-9) in Colorado Springs.

Air Force, which ended a three-game losing streak against the Mids, got 16 points and seven assists from A.J. Kuhle and a game-high six steals from Tim Keller.

Kings 66, Salisbury 50: Hasheem Alexander scored 15 points, but the Sea Gulls (2-8) fell to the tournament host in the first round of the Monarch Classic in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
