Florida Gulf Coast’s Spectacular Alley-Oop [VIDEO]
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles may have produced the biggest upset and the best highlight of the 2013 NCAA Tournament against Georgetown.
Florida Gulf Coast pulled off a shocker against Georgetown 78-68 on Friday night. It’s only the seventh time in NCAA Tournament history that a No. 15 seed beat a No. 2 seed. Sherwood Brown led all scorers with 24 points for Florida Gulf Coast while teammate Bernard Thompson pitched in 23 points.
With 1:56 remaining in the game, Florida GC’s Brett Comer executed a beautiful lob pass that Chase Fielder hammered home. The spectacular play gave the Eagles a 67-58 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. After getting to the Final Four in 2007, it’s been slim pickins for the Hoyas.
