LEVELLAND — The No. 16 ranked South Plains College women's basketball team returns to the Texan Dome on Saturday for a 2:00 p.m. tipoff against WJCAC conference foe Frank Phillips College.

South Plains has won nine of its last 10 and will look to bounce back after dropping a 58-55 nail-biter against Midland on Wednesday in its conference opener at the Al G. Langford Chaparral Center. Frank Phillips has won seven straight including a 75-65 victory over No. 10 Odessa College on Wednesday night.

A look back:

The Lady Texans swept the Lady Plainsmen a year ago picking up a 66-56 win on Dec. 3 at the Texan Dome followed by a 79-68 road win in Borger on Feb. 6. A win on Saturday will put the Lady Texans even at 1-1 in the WJCAC standings heading into the Christmas break.
