Clarence Jackson led all scorers with 24 points as Polk State got back in the win column Saturday with an 87-69 win over University of South Carolina-Salkehatchie at the State College of Florida Classic in Bradenton. 

"We took care of business today but still have to improve to reach our ultimate goal," said Head Coach Brandon Giles.  

Also scoring in double figures were Tekorian "TK" Smith (20), Dejan Ilinic (17), and Janiel Romer Rosario (10). 

The Eagles (8-2, No. 7 FCSAA) travel to Gainesville on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. game against Santa Fe College. The two teams met November 9 in Winter Haven, with the Eagles winning 74-68.
