Bolivar's 'amazing' sophomore Kyle Pock carries Liberators to state semifinal victory

In the first half of Thursday afternoon's Class 5 semifinal game, Bolivar sophomore Kyle Pock wasn't getting the looks he liked.

He finished the half with only three points with the same number of fouls. The Liberators trailed by five at the break.

In the second half, he found he was freed up a little bit and he took what the defense gave him.

"I was able to do what I do," he said.
