FGCU coach Andy Enfield told me they practice lobs because chest-level passes are disadvantageous for tall athletes...(and less fun for us)

Can't say this enough: #DunkCity. Chase Fieler with a huge dunk on the baseline. #ASunMBB

Real-time highlight: FGCU slams it home and has a chance for a three point play.

Looks like Florida Gulf Coast has been taking notes from Lob City -> #FloridaLobCoast (via @jadande)

Florida Gulf Coast University aka Dunk City! #RallyCry

Florida Dunk Coast is back, everybody. Videos and GIFs. Will update as needed

Can't imagine how valuable this exposure is for Florida Gulf Coast basketball and the institution itself. Unreal. Congrats to them for this.

Wait this team finished second in the ASun? So was Mercer the Miami Heat?

DUNK CITY has taken over Philadelphia. F! G! C! U!

I have ALWAYS said there is no more entertaining brand of basketball than what they play in the Atlantic Sun Conference

FGCU, love you. Comer, love you. Crazy fearless and loose.

Brett Comer is just carving up SDSU. You should read @SIPeteThamel piece on him today.…

FGCU is a #1 seed on the fun-o-meter.

Raise your hand if you're becoming a FGCU believer.

Pretty sure Philly fans would swap the Sixers for Florida Gulf Coast as homecourt team right about now.

SITimLayden Mar 24, 7:42pm via Web
If you think it's very cool to be sitting in the gym in Philadelphia rt now, watching FGCU and SD State, well, you're right.

BFeldmanCBS Mar 24, 7:44pm via Web
Love the FGCU story: a school virtually no one ever heard off till this wk. Element of discovery makes March Madness great

Sherwood Brown people. #MarchMadness

DEVELOPING: A 15-seed has NEVER advanced to the Sweet 16. Florida Gulf Coast (aka "Dunk City") is up 10 with 8:00 left.

AndyGlockner Mar 24, 7:50pm via TweetDeck
Comer is filthy. He just put Tapley in the blender.

BleacherReport Mar 24, 7:48pm via TweetDeck
FGCU has quickly become America's favorite college basketball team. #DunkCity

ESPNCBB Mar 24, 7:53pm via TweetDeck
No 15 seed has ever reached the Sweet 16. Florida Gulf Coast up 10 with 7 minutes to go. #HistoryAlert

I don't root against teams but Florida GC is so much fun to watch #PlaySoHard

We are all Eagles tonight, each and every one of us. #AOUEOU

They ain't here to run no clock. RT @StevePoliti: For the love of Cinderella -- Run. Some. Clock. FGCU!

ASun_Patrick Mar 24, 8:02pm via TweetDeck
This is insane @FGCU_MBB on a 17-0 run; lead San Diego State 71-52. Similar to 2nd half run vs. G'Town #ASunMBB #DunkCity

RT @CollegeHoopsNet: #FGCU is the best thing that's happened to college basketball since the shot clock

FGCU has just over 11,000 undergraduates in student body. Watch applications go through the roof!

Less than 1% of 8.15 million @ESPNFantasy Tournament Challenge brackets picked Florida Gulf Coast to make the Sweet 16. #DunkCity

Sweet 16!!!!!!!!!!!! What's up?

GaryParrishCBS Mar 24, 8:51pm via Echofon
FGCU lost to Lipscomb twice. "They're our kryptonite," said FGCU's Eddie Murray. "Glad we don't have to play them in the Sweet 16."

Quiet time on the plane ...What a feeling. Thank you to our players who have bought into what we want to do. Couldn't ask for a better group

Line of the night from Sherwood Brown in the holding room prior to presser "I'm gonna need to take online classes"  #Sweet16Problems

Honest Q: Is FGCU the most wildly entertaining/compelling NCAA team since 1990 Loyola Marymount?

Play fearless, make history. @FGCU_MBB is picking up speed. #WeAreFGCU

ASun_Patrick 2:41am via TweetDeck
It's late but worth noting, @FGCU_MBB has five of the seven latest posts on @Deadspin. #DunkCity #ASunMBB
