Air Force women's basketball coach unmoved by 'small' milestone team could achieve with sweep

The Air Force women’s basketball team travels to San Diego State on Wednesday and Utah State on Saturday, visiting the two teams it has defeated this season.

For the Falcons (2-23, 2-12 Mountain West), it represents two shots at sweeping an opponent for the first time since doubling up on Colorado State in 2008.

Coach Chris Gobrecht was less than impressed by the opportunity to do something the program hasn’t seen in a decade.

“I want to get to the point with this program where the milestones stop being so small," Gobrecht said. "And so seemingly insignificant.”

Gobrecht said the item that makes her most proud in her third season at the helm is the overall gap in competitive numbers. The Falcons were outscored by 17.5 points per conference game in her first season, 13.3 in her second and by 7 points this season. Counting only Mountain West statistics, the Falcons rank third in defense and first in steals.

“I want to get a sweep because I don’t want to finish last,” said Gobrecht, whose Falcons enter Wednesday a half game back of Utah State for 10th place and one game behind San Jose State for ninth. “That would be nice, that would be a nice next step … do whatever we can to not finish last.”
