FLORIDA GULF COAST RUMORS

Atlantic Sun Preview: Dunk City Is Dead; Long Live Dunk City

It’s been two years since Florida Gulf Coast charmed the country and made a run to the Sweet 16 as a 15 seed, prompting USC to hire Andy Enfield, and in that time new head coach Joe Dooley, a former assistant at Kansas, has finished tied for first and second in the league, but has no NCAA tournament appearances to show for it. It figures to get even tougher for the Eagles as they...

Video: Florida Gulf Coast’s Brett Comer And Demetris Morant Connect On 5 Alley-Oops In One Game

The coaching staff and much of the roster may be different than it was in 2013, but Florida Gulf Coast is still “Dunk City.” Fans who followed the Eagles back when they made their wild tournament run two seasons ago will remember guard Brett Comer, who was the catalyst in so many alley-oops and wild plays. Comer is still leading the way for FGCU, averaging 7.7 assists per game...

Watch: FGCU hit five alley-oops against Furman with the same two players

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Furman’s defense is not spectacular.

FGCU beat Furman 83-78 via the alley-oop…. All five of the @brettcomer_0 alley-oops to @bouncymeech21 tonight. ...

Watch: FGCU's Bernard Thompson with huge dunk

March Madness won’t be quite the same if Dunk City isn’t involved, and Florida Gulf-Coast is trying to avoid such a cruel fate. After trailing 33-17 at the half, the Eagles have soared back to make this a three-point game, and have done so with that high-flying transition basketball that the country fell in love with last year.  There are just under three minutes remaining...

Vine: Dunk City Returns With This Huge FGCU Put-Back Slam Against Northern Kentucky

Florida Gulf-Coast University, the school better known as ‘Dunk City’ after its amazingly entertaining NCAA Tournament run last March, hasn’t quite reclaimed that title so far this regular season, but here on March 1, it looks like the Eagles are ready to get back in the national spotlight.  Early in the second half junior guard Bernard Thompson flies through the line for...

FGCU loses in heartbreaking fashion after buzzer-beater waved off vs. USF

Florida Gulf Coast’s Chase Fieler nearly pulled off the impossible Tuesday night against South Florida. Trailing by two point with 0.3 seconds left in double overtime, Fieler caught a full-court alley-oop pass and laid it in. Unfortunately for FGCU, the basket didn’t count because of an NCAA rule where any time less than 0.4 seconds left on the clock, a player cannot catch and...
