FGCU Eagles Moving Up the Food Chain

During the 2013 NCAA Tournament one of the greatest stories in Collegiate history has unfolded before our eyes. Florida Gulf Coast University has taken the NCAA Tournament by storm soaring their way into the colleges elite Sweet Sixteen. In only their second year of tournament eligibility FGCU Eagles have embarked on a college changing experience. While this appears to be a David versus Goliath film script, the Eagles are playing like a team with more than just a stone in a sling shot..

 Head Coach Andy Enfield's young players Sherwood Brown, Bernard Thompson, Chase Fieler, Eric Mc Knight and Brett Comer appear to be in sync playing in a zone. Team chemistry and trust is peaking apparent by the helter skelter type passes Comer tosses to driving teammates on fast breaks almost out of thin air. Allowing athletes to play a lose brand of exciting basketball that fits their personality coach Enfield's Eagles have become the Cinderellas of these 2013 NCAA Tournaments.

Defeating #2 Georgetown in the first round of 64 was monumental but far from the beginning of this great story . On November 13th 2012, FGCU faced heavily favored Miami Hurricanes in Fort Myers Florida as 7.5 point underdogs. Brown and Mc Knight scored 14 points each and Thompson contributed 13 points as FGCU defeated Miami 63-51 in front of a sold out crowd of 4,552 at Alico Arena. How good was Eagles versus the Hurricanes? FGCU outscored Miami 40-14 in points in the paint, while flashing off 6 fast break dunks which have become their trademark in the tournament.

This season including the NCAA Tournament FGCU has faced VCU, Miami, Duke, Georgetown and San Diego State going a combined 3-2 after losing the season opener to VCU. Remember it's not how you start but how you finish and the Eagles have premiere collegiate talent at every position on the court. The state of Florida has three teams alive in the field of sixteen and next on FGCU's "Road to the Final Four" is an in state match-up against the Florida Gators. A win on Friday against the Gators will propel the Eagles up the Florida food chain and into NCAA's Elite 8.
