Florida Gulf Coast has been the talk of the NCAA Tournament. The school  opened its doors to students in 1997 and wasn’t even eligible for postseason play until last year. In their first-ever NCAA tournament game, the 15th-seeded Eagles busted brackets everywhere with a win over Georgetown, a game in which they took control with a 21-2 run in the second half. FGCU become just the seventh No. 15 seed to beat a No. 2, winning 78-68. The Eagles then became the first 15 to reach the Sweet 16, beating seventh-seeded San Diego State 81-71 following a 17-0 run.
