Air Force Falcons Basketball Schedule in 2014-15

As a member of the extremely competitive Mountain West Conference, Air Force annually faces off against some of the best college basketball teams in the country. Successfully making it through the challenging Mountain West regular season is an unenviable task but each and every year Air Force proves that they are more than capable of hanging with their highly ranked conference rivals. The Falcons will have ample opportunities to rack up some big wins and should they do well enough in the regular season they may be able to earn an at large bid for the NCAA Tournament. Even if that should fail Air Force will still have a shot at an automatic bid if they can win the Mountain West Tournament. The Falcons will have to improve on their performance last season, as their 12-18 overall record won't cut it, just as it did not last season. 2014 will offer this team a chance to rebound.

The Falcons will face a lot of teams out of the Mountain West, and that is never as easy task. 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.The Falcons will look to take down as many conference foes as possible in 2014-15..


Air Force Falcons Basketball History

The Air Force Falcons basketball program goes back a long way, and the team has put together many big seasons over the years. The team made its first NCAA Tournament back in 1960, and has appeared in the Big Dance multiple times since then. The Falcons are yet to win an NCAA Tournament game as of yet, but they hope to change that soon. After playing in the Mountain West Conference for years Air Force has developed rivalries with several teams in the league which they play twice a year. Of course, games against in state rivals Colorado State always are heated battles and the Falcons' fans always get worked up for these matches. Additionally, Air Force is always looking to take down some of the traditional powerhouses of the conference like San Diego State.


Fan 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 in 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.


Air Force Falcons Basketball Trivia

Did you know that the Air Force Falcons have reached the semifinals of the National Invitational Tournament (NIT)?

That's right; in 2007 the Falcons defeated Austin Peay, Georgia and DePaul to reach the semifinals of the tournament. However, the Falcons would suffer a heartbreaking, one-point loss to the Clemson Tigers in that game. Still, it remains one of the most successful seasons in the history of the program.


Great Players for the Air Force Falcons

The Air Force Falcons have seen some incredible players hit the court for the team over the years, and those players contributed to some of the most successful seasons in the history of the hoops program. Thus far, none of these athletes have been able to reach the National Basketball Association, but a former member of the Air Force, Bernard James, did move on to play at the pro level. However, he played for the Florida State Seminoles during his college hoops days. The Falcons may not have had an NBA-caliber player come through their program, but that has not stopped them from winning a lot of games.
