LAGUNA BEACH — One day is all Costa Mesa High Coach Bryan Rice said he had to prepare for the Laguna Beach boys' basketball team.
One day turned out to be not enough time for the Mustangs to knock off the defending Orange Coast League champion.
In a game featuring two undefeated league teams on Friday night, the Breakers stayed perfect. Laguna Beach improved to 4-0 in league with a 63-50 victory at home.
The Mustangs (14-6, 3-1 in league) still haven't won at Laguna Beach during the Orange Coast League's six seasons in existence.
Despite the Breakers being Costa Mesa's second opponent in a three-day span, this might have been the Mustangs' best shot to prevail at Laguna Beach. The Mustangs, ranked seventh in the CIF Southern Section Division 4A poll, had won seven straight games.
