TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Tallahassee Community College men's basketball team is coming off the comeback of all comebacks. They trailed 21 points in last night's State Tournament Quarterfinals with just thirteen minutes to play, and the Eagles rallied back to beat Eastern Florida State by nine.

Head coach Mark White said the win over the fourth ranked team in the country is all about the kids, and at this time of the season, the motto is just survive and advance.

"It's literally a possession by a possession game," he said on Thursday. "You feel like it's going to come down to the end and I mean literally, you have to fight and battle every single possession just to give yourself a chance to win in the last two minutes of the game. That's the mindset of us coaches when you're in a tournament against this competition."

The Eagles face Daytona State on Friday in the Semifinals. Tip-off is at 3:00 in Ocala at College of Central Florida.
