There are some teams in basketball who live or die by the three point shot and on Monday evening the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen were a team that was playing with that mindset. At the BCAC, Lady Plainsmen was a team who used the three point shot to carry them to an 84-64 win over the Clarendon College Lady Bulldogs in non-conference action.
The Lady Plainsmen were an on fire team from outside nailing 16 three-pointers in the game, including 11 in the first half.
The Clarendon College Bulldog Basketball Teams are making a return to compete in the toughest junior college conference in the nation next year.
â€śAfter approval from the National Junior College Athletic Association as well as the Western Junior College Athletic Conference, and with final approval from the Clarendon College Board of Regents, the basketball programs will move to NJCAA Division I competition starting next year,â€ť CC Athletic Director John Green said. â€śI am thrilled we are making this move back into DI status.â€ť
