The Frank Phillips Lady Plainsmen and Ranger College Lady Rangers battled on the hardwood at the BCAC Friday night. It looked like it was going to be a low scoring affair with FPC leading 24-21 at the half. However, both of the ladies came out a little warmer in the second half, but the Lady Plainsmen came out on the short end of the scoreboard 69-63. It was a great game, with the lead changing hands thirteen times.
