The freshman turned in his first career double-double in a Cougar uniform, with 16 points and 10 assists in the win.
The recipient on a number of Moore's drives-and-dishes -- Klay Thompson.
The Pac-10's leading scorer, and the No. 3 hoopster in the nation coming into Saturday with a 25.8 ppg average, poured in 19 points against Air Force. It was the first time this season the true sophomore didn't score at least 20 points in a game.
Still, the Cougars shot 51 percent on the night and committed a season low three first half turnovers.
But that didn't mean Bone was pleased in the least with the execution.
He yanked all five starters at one point, saying on the post-game radio show it wasn't just one player failing to execute on a designed play coming out of a timeout, but instead "more like four or five of them."
The Cougs got it together enough to pull away in the second half after Air Force had closed to within a deuce at 59-57 with 6:22 remaining in the game. Early in the half, at the 16:34 mark, WSU had opened their largest lead, a 14-point advantage.
But Moore, Thompson and Nikola Koprivica, who pulled down a career high 11 rebounds, helped WSU stretch the lead back to double digits and put the game out of reach.
The Cougars have two more non-conference games -- in Kennewick vs. Portland State on Dec. 19 and in Seattle vs. LSU on Dec. 22 -- before opening Pac-10 play in Pullman against the Oregon schools on Dec. 31 and Jan.2.
