The Mainland girls basketball team knew there'd be nights like this.

The Buccaneers assembled a killer schedule to prepare themselves for the state playoffs. So after suffering their second loss in five games, they weren't hanging their heads.

Mainland (3-2) suffered a 50-38 loss to Spruce Creek on Nov. 29 on the Hawks' home court.

"Our goal is to get to states, so this game doesn't faze us," said Mainland senior guard Nyasia James.
