2013 NCAA Tournament: Is Florida Gulf Coast the Best No. 15 Seed Ever?
The Eagles have shocked the nation and became the first ever No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16. Andy Enfield has his team believing in his system and it has paid off. They have one of the most beautiful campuses in America, an up-and-coming coach and now a Sweet 16 berth in their first ever tournament appearance– what a tough life.
This could be the best No. 15 seed to ever grace the NCAA with it’s talent.
Sherwood Brown is the team’s leader and a vocal team player. He’s also not very camera shy as the attention he and the Eagles are receiving seems right up his alley.
This team hasn’t done anything the boring way either. They make everything look impressive, from their defense to their dunks, they are uber-talented.
Bernard Thompson and Brown led the team for the second straight game, combining for 40 points, 12 rebounds and seven steals. This program was founded just over 20 years ago and in just their sixth season in Division I basketball, they are in the Sweet 16 of the most prestigious tournament in college sports.
March Madness could not get any wilder than this as the team that was given little chance by anyone beat yet another favorite and will advance to the round of 16 while racking up the highlight plays. This team is no fluke, they are for real and they are good.
