Polk State basketball improved to 2-0 tonight, defeating Victory Rock Prep 79-52 in Winter Haven.

"I'm pleased with our effort and the way responded coming out to start the second half," said Head Coach Brandon Giles.
"I thought the buys really brought it in the second half and kind of put the other team away early on. That's what we wanted to do in the first half but I give credit to Victory Rock Prep they have a good, well-coached ball club and they really fought hard tonight."
Tekorian "TK" Smith led the Eagles with 19 points, making eight of 13 shots from the field.
