Florida Gulf Coast Celebrates Trip To Sweet 16 [VIDEO]
FGCU is the most interesting story of the 2013 NCAA Tournament thus far. Watch the Eagles celebrate the first trip to the Sweet 16 ever by a No. 15 seed.
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles are a fantastic story in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. They are the first No. 15 seed to earn a trip to the Sweet 16 in tournament history. They’ve provided plenty of high-flying dunks. The Eagles have also done it with a lot of color and flare. They’re kind of like the Jamaican bobsledding team in the Olympics. They march to the beat of a different drum.
FGCU began the NCAA Tournament by taking down No. 2 seeded Georgetown 78-68 on Friday. The Eagles earned a berth to the Sweet 16 by beating No. 7 seeded San Diego State 81-71 on Sunday. FGCU has a date against the Florida Gators, a No. 3 seed, on Friday. The game is tentatively scheduled to tip at 10:07pm ET. All eyes will be on the Eagles.
