The victory pits the Ravens against Howard in the quarterfinals on Tuesday, March 7, at 7 p.m. at Polytech. Howard beat Glasgow 82-80 in double overtime in another second round game. Tech is 21-3 while Howard is 18-6.

In the fourth period, Polk hit one of his 6 three-pointers with 6:50 left for his 2,000th point and less than a minute later, with 6:01 remaining, buried another three-pointer to give Tech a 41-40 lead it would never relinquish.

After Polk's three-pointer, Tech's L.J. Walston sank a pair of free throws to put Tech up 45-42 with 3:02 remaining and after St. Mark's pulled within 45-44 late in the game, Polk hit two more foul shots for a 47-44 Ravens lead with 37 seconds left.
