AFA basketball notes: Fow provides spark

Air Force junior Tom Fow gave the Falcons a lift off the bench Saturday despite still feeling the effects of a stomach virus.

Fow began feeling sick Tuesday, sat out Wednesday’s game against Utah and was unable to practice Friday. But after receiving intravenous fluids before Saturday's game with UNLV, “he said, ‘Coach, I think I can give you something,’” Air Force coach Jeff Reynolds said.

Fow scored eight points and had an assist in 14 minutes. Three of his four baskets came when he made sharp cuts to the hoop and received pinpoint passes from freshman guard Todd Fletcher.

“I definitely knew (UNLV) was going to be playing all over me because they know I’m a shooter,” Fow said. “And coach has been telling every single one of us that they were going to play up in our grills, so you need to get those back-door cuts. So we’ve been looking for them.”

While Fow played well, Reynolds said the junior “doesn’t have much juice” because of his illness.

“He missed those two open 3s, and he normally doesn’t miss those,” Reynolds said.

Etc.
Air Force went 4-of-17 from 3-point range. The Falcons are 6-of-34 from beyond the 3-point arc (17.6 percent) in their last two games. … Air Force grabbed 18 rebounds to UNLV’s 31, matching a season low set earlier in the week against Utah.
