The state's third-ranked team in Class 4 came into Rackers Fieldhouse and shot an amazing 62 percent from the floor Wednesday night.

And still lost.

The Helias Crusaders used a hot shooting effort from 3-point range - including a buzzer-beater from Deion Hughes - and knocked the Mexico Bulldogs from the ranks of the unbeaten with a 57-54 win.
