The Polk State College men's basketball team earned its first Suncoast Conference victory Friday with a 62-54 win over Hillsborough Community College on the road.
The Eagles (16-7) evened their conference record to 1-1 after losing to State College of Florida in overtime on Wednesday.
Polk trailed Hillsborough 8-0 at the 13:54 mark in the game, but the Eagles rallied to lead 27-17 at the half.
"It was an important win," said Polk State College coach Matt Furjanic. "We picked it up and played well. We got the road win we needed."
The Eagles play St. Petersburg College Monday on the road.
