Anthony, Brothers combine for 56 to beat Air Force

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Spiders were without the best player on their front line, but needed a win to end a three game losing streak. So they turned to their two most prolific scorers on their back line.

Kendall Anthony poured in a career-high 31 points, and Darien Brothers added 25 as the Spiders downed Air Force 91-68.

The 5-foot-8 Anthony, inserted into the starting lineup in place of injured big man Derrick Williams, missed only twice from beyond the arc in topping his previous high of 24 points.

Virginia native Michael Lyons led the Falcons (8-4) with 19 points, but Air Force was taken out early after an explosive scoring burst by Anthony.

He followed a 3-pointer by teammate Deion Taylor with one of his own. After Terry Allen scored on a drive for the Spiders, Anthony hit again from behind the arc. After a free throw by Kamryn Williams for the Falcons, Anthony hit two more 3s, then made a steal and layup to give Richmond a 39-23 lead.

The Spiders are now off until next Wednesday, when they begin A-10 play against Rhode Island.
