Polk State basketball set a school record Feb. 8, making 18 three-point shots in an 85-74 win over State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota, in Bradenton.
Kerry Richardson sank six three-pointers and led all scorers with 25 points. Tekorian "TK" Smith finished with 18 points, making four from beyond the arc. Tommie Lewis tallied 10 points while Clarence Jackson and Derrick "DJ" Molden each scored nine.
"It was a great overall team victory," said head coach Brandon Giles. "When we defend and rebound I believe we can beat anyone on any given night.”
