The Temple Daily Telegram reported that Tammara Ringer did all she could do for the

Lady Leopards, recording 16 points, nine rebounds, and five steals. But it wasn't enough to prevent TC from absorbing a potentially crushing defeat.

Going into Wednesday, Temple (13-15, 6-8) trailed McLennan by 1 1/2 games for the

NTJCAC's fourth and final playoff spot. The combination of TC's lass at Cisco (16-11,

6-7) and MCC's likely win at conference. Lightweight Southwestern Christian late

Wednesday probably will spell doom for the Lady Leopards with just two games left.

"We definitely have to sweep our last two to have any chance," TC coach Kim Sebek said. "There's still a glimmer of hope, but we have to win and get some help."

TC tried to come back from its 35-26 halftime deficit to Cisco, but the Lady Wranglers, who got 17 points from Mae Lamkin, held on to win and move ahead of Sebek's squad in the conference standings.

"We did some good things, but Cisco executed really well on the offense and our shooting from the outside was not good," Sebek said.

TC has a bye on Saturday before playing host to Collin county next Wednesday.
