By now, just about every sports fan in the country has heard about Florida Gulf Coast University as they’ve made history during the 2013 NCAA Tournament by becoming the first No. 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16. Despite all of the brackets they’ve messed up after impressive wins over Georgetown and San Diego State, you can’t help but root for the Eagles at this point and what better way to get excited about their Sweet 16 matchup than a catchy music video–“Dunk City.”
The catchy song performed by Black Magic featuring Bambi contains all of the impressive dunks from their first game of the tournament against the Hoyas and the tune is quickly catching on around the web now that Florida Gulf Coast will be facing off against Florida in the Sweet 16. For a team that not many basketball fans knew about heading into the tournament, the Eagles are now being described as one of the most fun teams to watch this tournament as their players have displayed more impressive dunks than some of the ones we see in the NBA.
One of the best parts about this time of year is watching Cinderella teams emerge out of nowhere to make a serious run in the tournament and what the Eagles accomplished this weekend was nothing short of amazing. Now that they’re in the Sweet 16, let’s hope Black Magic and Bambi come out with a second version of “Dunk City” to keep their fans happy.
