SAN DIEGO -

Winston Shepard scored 14 of his 16 points in the final 7 minutes, 14 seconds and the No. 5 San Diego State Aztecs bounced back from their first loss since mid-November to beat Air Force 64-56 on Saturday night.
    
After the Falcons closed to 54-50 with 2:28 to go, Shepard converted a three-point play and hit two more free throws to give SDSU some breathing room.
    
Shepard also keyed a 9-0 run earlier in the second half with a 3-pointer, a slam dunk following a steal by Xavier Thames and two free throws.
    
Thames and Dwayne Polee II each scored 13 points for SDSU (22-2, 11-1 Mountain West), which had its 20-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night at New Mexico. It was SDSU's first loss since a 69-60 home defeat to Arizona on Nov. 14. Josh Davis had 10 rebounds.
    
Max Yon scored 20 for Air Force (10-14, 4-9).
