N.C.A.A. Tournament — Florida Gulf Coast Isn’t Ready to Cede Spotlight

Stashed in: Basketball, Florida!

Lob passes led to tomahawk jams. Ricochets off the glass were finished off as windmill dunks. Even the Eagles’ botched attempts were spectacular, eliciting oohs and aahs. By the time that Chase Fieler tossed a bounce pass toward the hoop, grabbed the ball as he gained momentum, threaded it between his legs and threw down a jarring dunk, Florida Gulf Coast had recaptured the crowd’s imagination.

“Dunk City in the house!” someone shouted.

The Eagles still embraced the underdog role Thursday, but they looked and sounded as if they had shaken off the stardust from victories over Georgetown and San Diego State as they prepared for Friday night’s game against third-seeded Florida.

This should be good. :)
