Dunk City _ the team from Florida Gulf Coast _ just 2 wins away from repeat NCAA tourney berth
FORT MYERS, Fla. – Don't look now, but those Dunk City guys have the NCAA tournament in sight again.
Florida Gulf Coast got the nation's attention with a stunning run as a No. 15 seed to the Sweet 16 last season, and now the Eagles are two wins away from heading back to the Big Dance.
They'll play host to East Tennessee State in the semifinals of the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament on Thursday night, and a win in that game means the title game would be at home on Sunday.
Win that, and they're back in the NCAAs. And with 15 wins in its last 19 games, it seems like Florida Gulf Coast is peaking at the right time.
