The Bucs finish up the regular season with a 15-11 overall record and tied for fourth place in the Southern Conference with a 6-4 record, while the Spartans record stands at 4-13, 3-6. "It was a good win, and it's good to finish tied for fourth in the conference," said head coach Steve Brooks. "I'm proud of the seniors each of them earned a win on the courts today."
