RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Dikymbe Martin knocked down all four of his 3-pointers and scored a career-high 22 points and Menno Dijkstra added career highs of 12 points and 12 rebounds as UC Riverside snapped a four-game skid with a 67-48 victory over Air Force on Friday night.

Chance Murray finished with 15 points, six rebounds, four assists and three steals for the Highlanders (3-6), who shot 53 percent (25 of 47) from the floor.

Ryan Swan scored a career-high 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting for the Falcons (5-5), while Trevor Lyons hit three 3-pointers and scored 14.

Air Force never found the range on offense. The Falcons made just 17 of 56 (30 percent) from the floor, including 5 of 27 (18.5 percent) from long range, and nine of 17 free throws (53 percent).

Martin hit a 3-pointer 19 seconds into the game and the Highlanders jumped out to a 9-0 lead. Air Force took its only lead of the game, 20-18, on a 3-pointer by Ryan Manning with 8: 30 left in the first half. Swan’s layup pulled Air Force even at 26, but the Falcons went scoreless over the final 5:33 of the half and trailed 34-26 at intermission.
