The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles will be the big story for ESPN this week. We will see head coach Andy Enfield answer questions about his house being on the market and that gorgeous wife he took out to Taco Bell. We learn more about just who Sherwood Brown, Brett Comer and Chase Fieler are as we will see countless shots of beautiful shell-lined beaches. This is what happens when a school...
Florida Gulf Coast University, the Cinderella team of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, now has their own rap video.
Florida Gulf Coast beat San Diego State, 81-69, to become the first No. 15 seed to make it to the Sweet 16.
They’ll face third-seeded Florida Friday night.
FGSU shocked everyone by beating the No. 2 seed Georgetown 78-68 in the second round.
That win inspired...
After an impressive victory over the San Diego State Aztecs, Florida Gulf Coast’s Sherwood Brown went through and shook the announcers hands again. Might as well keep the same routine, with how the Eagles are rolling they shouldn’t change a single thing.
via YouTube This is what happens when a 15-seed makes it to the Sweet 16. We haven’t seen it before (because it’s never happened). After upsetting the 2-seed Georgetown on Friday, FGCU beat the 7-seed San Diego State Sunday behind Bernard Thomson’s 23 points, Sherwood Brown’s 17 points and eight rebounds and Brett Comer’s 10 points and 14 assists. Head coach Andy...
Not even many basketball fans knew about Florida Gulf Coast just a couple of weeks ago. They do now -- the Eagles are the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16.
Bernard Thompson scored 23 points and Sherwood Brown added 17 to lead FGCU to its second NCAA tournament win in as many tries, an 81-71 victory over San Diego State on Sunday night.

Dave Balza would like to dispel two statements.
Both are correct in terms of the letter of the law. But both are still a bit off, both taken a smidge out of context.
You'll have heard the first if you've watched even a few minutes of March Madness this year, especially if those minutes have been of the frenetic, underdog, blue and green variety.
In fact, if you've...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Not even many basketball fans knew about Florida Gulf Coast just a couple of weeks ago. They do now the Eagles are the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Sherwood Brown only wanted a bagel.
The Florida Gulf Coast star walked into a restaurant on campus Monday and was quickly surrounded. People wanted autographs. People wanted photos. People just wanted to yell words of encouragement.
A school that opened a mere 16 years ago finds itself front-and-center in March Madness, one of only 16 college basketball...

The high flying FGCU Eagles play Oklahoma on Sunday/
When I looked at the game matchup last Friday, I saw how the #15 seed Florida Gulf Coast University (FCGU) (25-10, 13-5 A-Sun) Eagles could get an upset over # 2 seed Georgetown Hoyas (25-7, 14-4 Big East) 78-68. After shocking the basketball world, the Eagles will play...
San Diego State knows what Georgetown felt like.
The Aztecs, like the Hoyas two nights earlier, could only watch Florida Gulf Coast celebrate an upset win at the NCAA tournament. This was an historic one - the 81-71 victory made the Eagles the first No. 15 seed to reach the NCAA tournament's round of 16.
And just like in FGCU's win over second-seeded Georgetown, it was...
Let’s see a show of hands: who had Florida Gulf Coast winning two games in the 2013 NCAA tournament? We don’t believe you. There’s no way anyone could have predicted any 15-seed would make it to the Sweet 16, much less a school making its first trip to the NCAA tournament.
Florida Gulf Coast beat seventh-seeded San Diego State, 81-71, on Sunday, giving the Fort Myers, Fla...
Florida Gulf Coast was the breakout star of the weekend, alley-ooping its way on to the national stage to capture everyone's attention. You probably watched the Eagles crash the round of 16 like everyone else. Well, there were 63 other teams playing last weekend, too.
La Salle broke through as well. Bluebloods such as Duke and Michigan State were big winners as well. So the...
Some of the most jaw dropping bracket flops have been taken place lately. Starting with Harvard’s win over New Mexico 68-62, perfect score brackets went down to the 1000′s as reported by ESPN. Millions of fans every year try to predict the winners of each of the 63 games in the tournament. There have been big surprises and even bigger upsets. Some of the higher ranked seeds been...
1. With the win Florida Gulf Coast goes to 26-10 on the season. Prior to Andy Enfield's arrival, the Eagles best Division I record was 11-20. In his first season (last year) the Eagles were close to their first ever winning record (15-17). They've gone 14-2 over the past 16 games.
2. Sophomore Brett Comer has saved his best basketball for the right time. In two tournament...
