Plainsmen basketball team will have several familiar faces

May 9, 2012

One of the things that separates junior college athletics from what can be found at universities is the high amount of turnaround teams tend to see from one year to the next. In recent years, the high turnover trend was alive and well in the Frank Phillips College Plainsmen Men’s Basketball program where having just two or three players turning from the previous season seemed to be the norm.
However, the Plainsmen appear to be breaking the trend, as eight players have signed letter of intents to return to Frank Phillips College, including all five starters from the 2011-12 squad.
