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

The Eagles led 37-27 at the end of the first half and outscored Victory Rock 42-26 in the second half.  

"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. 

Janiel Jafet "JJ" Romer Rosario scored 14 points and grabbed five rebounds. 

Alaowei Talent finished with 13 points and seven rebounds. 

Marlon Suarez had 11 points and six rebounds.
