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 Enfield teaches a carefree style of basketball that has obviously gotten through to his kids who have not shown a lick of nervousness in the biggest games of their lives.

16 of FGCU’s made field goals were lay-ups, dunks or tip-ins.  The Eagles used a 16-0 run in the second half to blow the game open.

Above is video of Enfield getting doused with water and FGCU’s locker room celebration.
