Lady Plainsmen Come from Behind in Dramatic Fashion to Earn 20th Win of Season
The third time was the charm Thursday night for sophomore shooting guard Kinsley Choate (Panhandle) as she sank a 25-footer with a little more than seven seconds remaining to tie the score at 61-all between Frank Phillips College and Howard College at the Borger Community Activities Center. 

The Lady Plainsmen put the game in the hands of its best 3-point shooter, Choate who had a trio of opportunities which began on a throw in with 18.8 seconds remaining spanning the court from right to left. The first shot from 30 feet kicked off the back of the iron, her second attempt from the top of the key, was a miss as well, but the third attempt from the left half of the court not only went in, but Choate was fouled on the play presenting a rare 4-point play opportunity, one that Choate completed to give Frank Phillips a 62-61 advantage with 7.7 seconds remaining in the game. Howard had a good look at the basket, but the final shot would not fall and the Lady Plainsmen found a way to hold on for an amazing come from behind victory. 

The Lady Plainsmen notched win number 20 to match their current spot in the NJCAA Division I national poll and most likely secured one of four spots from the WJCAC in the upcoming Region 5 Tournament in Frenship beginning on Thursday, March 8th. FPC improved to 8-and-3 in conference play which is a game-and-a-half behind No. 4 ranked New Mexico Junior College which is 9-and-1 in conference play. Frank Phillips hosts New Mexico on Thursday, Feb. 22nd at 5:45 p.m. in the next conference contest for the Lady Plainsmen.

Sophomore center Marlene Aniambossou (Cotonou, Benin) scored a basket to pull within five, 58-53 with 3:06 remaining. Howard sharp shooter Addyson Moseley sank her second consecutive 3-point basket to push it to 61-53, but FPC sophomore point guard Perrine Manoury (Bordeaux, France) answered with her own trifecta to cut the lead to 61-56 with 1:05 left in the fourth. Choate took control finishing the game off with a jumper to cut it to three and finished the scoring with the dramatic 4-point play for the one point victory.

Balanced scoring proved once again to be the key to the Lady Plainsmen earning a victory. Aniambossou led FPC with 17 points and chipped in six rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Fellow sophomore captains Choate and Kiara Shoals (Foreman, Ark.) were in double figures with a dozen points. Shoals posted a double-double with 12 points, 11 rebounds, and nine assists. Freshman shooting guard Sable Darnell, an Amarillo High graduate connected on a huge 3-pointer midway through the fourth quarter to breathe life into the FPC offense.

Rounding out the scoring for FPC were sophomore Hannah Leavitt (Nazareth) scored four points and both Talitha Airington (Frisco) and Dixson added a basket each.

FPC Head Coach Eric Rodewald commented that great teams find a way to win and the Plainsmen were all in to the final buzzer.
