Florida Gulf Coast went a little crazy in its celebration after beating San Diego State 81-71 Sunday to reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. At this point, the grouchy types would tell them to âact like theyâve been there before.â But how can you blame them? They became the first 15 seed to ever reach the Sweet 16, and they celebrated accordingly. These dudes were running around the court tearing the roof off. They were chicken dancing, slapping hands with Reggie Miller, and popping water bottles like they were VIP members at the club. But nothing, and I mean nothing, can possibly top the awesome site of their team manager hopping around and busting moves like he was auditioning for a part in âSoul Train.â

After an impressive victory over the San Diego State Aztecs, Florida Gulf Coastâs Sherwood Brown went through and shook the announcers hands again. Â Might as well keep the same routine, with how the Eagles are rolling they shouldnât change a single thing.
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles are currently destroying the San Diego State Aztecs and they are loving every minute of it. Â They have been playing with a ton of emotion and it showed on the sidelines when a couple players started to do the chicken dance on the sideline. Â This win over the Aztecs would make FGCU the first 15 seed to win two games in a single NCAA tournament. Â Gotta...

Florida Gulf Coast continued to wow the college basketball world on Sunday, posterizing the Aztecs with its high-flying âDunk Cityâ style of play that has already inspired an amateur rap song.

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...
With their 81-71 win over San Diego State on Sunday, Florida Gulf Coast University became the first ever #15 seed to make it to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. In past tournaments there have been some low seed upsets that are just tournament flukes. Not the case for FGCU. This team is for real. With the way theyâre playing, they could become the first #15 seed in the...

It is not only Florida Gulf Coast tossing alley-oops; San Diego Stateâs Jamaal Franklin had this one one-handed flush today against FGCU.

San Diego State football capped off spring camp with their annual spring game, as Red (second team) upset Black (first team) 13-10.
