Polk State picked up its second straight win today, beating ASA College (Miami) 84-76 in Winter Haven.
The Eagles won for the fifth time in their last six games.
Polk State jumped out to a 12-2 lead and ended the first half up 48-41.
The Silver Storm cut the deficit to 70-66 at the five-minute mark in the second half but failed to get any closer.
Head Coach Matt Furjanic thought the Eagles could have performed with more intensity.
"We did what we had to do, but we didn't have the energy we had Saturday against Broward," he said.
"We're getting so close to conference play that we can't take any steps back now. We have to keep taking steps forward. I still don't think we're in game shape like we should be, and I think it showed tonight.
Furjanic said the team missed the intensity of Reger Baker, who did not play due to an illness in the family.
"But that means the next man has to step up, and it seems like we didn't get that tonight," he said.
"But we persevered and got a win, and that's the important thing. I think the players realized after the game that we have to be a little more intense all the time to be a consistent team every night.
"This will be a good game to review on film and show the players where we need to do more work."
The Eagles (13-5, No. 9 FCSAA) play IMG on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Winter Haven.
They start Suncoast Conference play Jan. 20 at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota.
