Florida Gulf Coast Eagles guard Sherwood Brown (25) celebrates after defeating the Georgetown Hoyas during the second round of the 2013 NCAA tournament at the Wells Fargo Center. Florida Gulf Coast defeated Georgetown 78-68.
The more I learn about Florida Gulf Coast the more I love this team. Not only are they located in a predominately football state, which seems to have changed this year, but the school and how they got this far is incredible.
The team held open tryouts at the beginning of the season..wow. They didn’t even have a fully recruited team like 99% of the nation.
Their campus is located on the coast as the name mentions, but I mean it is right on the coast. Their dorms are on the beach, like I mean the foundation extends into sand.
They are the first ever 15 seed to make it to the sweet sixteen, and if they played how they did last night against San Diego State, I don’t see it being a problem for them making it to the elite eight.
Sherwood Brown is straight cash. The dude is unstoppable and can ignite in a second. He’s surrounded by extremely athletic players who can contribute in almost anyway possible.
I don’t even care that the single handedly blew up my bracket, I’m jumping in their bandwagon. FGCU-2013 NCAA Champs, you heard it here first.
Proud of the Eagles! Boys you united our school and put FGCU on the map! Thank you! Seniors you had a great year! To the rest of the team I'll see you playing next year! We'll be back bigger and better! Only the beginning for Dunk City! Fly high Eagles!
