Ten years ago, Florida Gulf Coast head coach Andy Enfield gave Amanda Marcum a ride from New York to Boston so that she could watch her Oklahoma State Cowboys play in the NCAA Tournament.
Long story short, the two are now happily married and Marcum is once again at the NCAA Tournament, only this time to root for the Eagles against No. 2 Georgetown.
Well, if you don’t know who Marcum is, you probably should.
Marcum, 34, is a supermodel and has appeared on the cover of Maxim, Elle, and Vogue. Those days are gone now, as she is considered a stay-at-home mom these days with the couples’ three children, but either way she will be at the game on Friday night when Florida Gulf Coast and the Hoyas hit the hardwood.
So, what do we think?
After the whole Katherine Webb - Alabama football situation, there’s no doubt that TBS will certainly show Marcum on national television. It probably won’t just be once either, expect multiple Marcum sightings on Friday night.
Darren Rovell seems to think the over/under will be 2.5:
Setting the over/under on times Florida Gulf Coast coach Andy Enfield’s model wife is shown during the game tonight at 2.5.

I’ll take higher.
For the Eagles, the trip to the Big Dance marks their first such appearance in school history. In fact, this is just the second year that Florida Gulf Coast has even been eligible for the postseason. The Eagles qualified for the NCAA Tournament after winning the Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament. They were the first team to qualify for the Big Dance.
