Sophomore Kiara Shoals (Foreman, Ark.) was also in double figures with 14 points. Shoals grabbed seven boards, five steals, and dished out four assists.

Sophomore center Marlene Aniambossou (Benin) led FPC with 9 rebounds and added a basket. Sophomore point guard Perrine Manoury (France) dished out five assists for the Lady Plainsmen.

Also scoring for the Plainsmen were: Sable Darnell (Amarillo) four points; Talitha Aitington, three; Amanda Dixson, two; and Taje' Airington one.

FPC travels to undefeated and No. 2 New Mexico Junior College (20-0. 4-0) for a showdown between the conference leaders. Tip-off is set for 5:45 p.m. MT.
