FRESNO, California — Marvelle Harris made just one of two free throws with five seconds left but it was enough to secure a 68-66 victory for Fresno State over Air Force on Wednesday night, foiling an upset bid.
Fresno State (15-15, 10-7 Mountain West), secured sixth place and a first-round bye in the upcoming conference tournament.
Fresno State turned the ball over on a 10-second violation with 21 seconds left. The Falcons, however, were forced to call their final timeout to avoid a five-second violation on the inbounds. Marek Olesinski and Graham missed 3-point attempts — the latter blocked by Julien Lewis.
Graham scored 14 for Air Force.
