Air Force Falcons Basketball tickets

Air Force Falcons Basketball tickets

Air Force Falcons Basketball Schedule

Clune Arena, the Colorado Springs, Colorado home of the Air Force Falcons basketball team, is one of the most energetic arenas in all of college basketball. The Falcons are long time members of the Mountain West Conference and have scored some big wins within the conference over the years, emerging as serious contenders for the conference title. Last season was a bit of a disappointment for Air Force as they went 6-12 in the conference and finished second to last in the Mountain West, missing out on the NCAA Tournament. The Falcons will be looking to improve upon last year's performance and make their way back to the top of the conference standings and into the NCAA Tournament. It is never an easy task for a team to successfully navigate their way through a tough Mountain West schedule but the Falcons appear to have the talent and motivation to do just that in the 2014-2015 season.

The Air Force Falcons will once again be going up against all of the best teams in the Mountain West including the San Diego State Aztecs, the UNLV Running Rebels, the New Mexico Lobos, the Nevada Wolf Pack, and the Boise State Broncos. The Falcons and their fans are not used to ending up in the near the bottom of the conference standings and they are sure to be laying it all on the line in hopes of having a turn around season. Air Force appears to be poised to accomplish great things this season and you will want to be there at Clune Arena to cheer them on to some big wins. Tickets to see the Falcons play in Colorado Springs always sell quickly so be sure to get yours from StubHub as soon as possible.


Air Force Falcons Basketball History

Air Force is a charter member of the Mountain West Conference and as such has long standing rivalries with several of the top teams in the conference including UNLV, San Diego State, New Mexico, and others. Perhaps the biggest rival of Air Force is Colorado State who are not only conference rivals but also in-state rivals. The Falcons have made it to the NCAA Tournament four times but have yet to win a game in the Tournament. Their most recent trip to the Big Dance was in 2006 when they lost to Illinois in the first round. In 2004 Air Force won their first, and so far only, conference championship but the Falcons appear ready to turn things around under head coach Dave Pilipovich who guided the Falcons to some good wins in the conference last season as well as some tight battles with some of the top teams in the Mountain West. Losing seasons do not sit well at Air Force and all of the returning players will be extra motivated to work hard and pull off some big upsets during Mountain West play. This is an exciting time to be an Air Force Falcons fan and every die hard fan will want to be sure to be at Clune Arena to cheer on the Falcons right from the start.


Air Force Falcons Basketball Conference

In recent years the Mountain West Conference has emerged as a true national powerhouse. There are now eleven members of the Mountain West Conference: San Diego State, UNLV, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Nevada, Fresno State, Wyoming, Utah State, and San Jose State. Previous members have included TCU, Utah, and BYU. Of the current members, Utah State leads the way with twenty NCAA Tournament appearances. However, so far all of their appearances have come before joining the Mountain West. UNLV and Wyoming, two charter members of the Mountain West, are next in line with 19 and 14 respectively. UNLV and Wyoming are also the only two members of the conference to win a National Championship, with UNLV winning in 1990 and Wyoming winning all the way back in 1943. Lately it has been San Diego State, New Mexico, and UNLV who have dominated the conference on the basketball court with SDSU tearing up the national rankings during the 2013-2014 season.


The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot into Clune Arena for an Air Force Falcons home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Falcons' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The minute you leave Clune Arena you will want to begin your next trip back to help cheer on the Falcons.


Trivia

The most famous former Air Force basketball player is Gregg Popovich who coached the San Antonio Spurs to the 2014 NBA Championship when they thoroughly dismantled the Miami Heat. Popovich is one of only five coaches in the history of the NBA to have won five or more championships and is currently the longest tenured head coach in any of the four major professional sports leagues in the United States. The 17 consecutive winning seasons Gregg Popovich has been a part of as head coach of the San Antonio Spurs is longer than any other NBA coach.
