Florida Gulf Coast, a beautiful campus on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico located in Ft. Myers, Florida, became America's darling after upsetting Georgetown Friday night, leading by as many as 19 points, becoming just the seventh 15-seed in NCAA history to win a NCAA Tournament game and as I post this, they are on the verge of becoming the first 15-seed to make it to the Sweet 16. Not bad for a school that was granted full Division 1 status just 591 days ago and had to go D1 because no D2 conference wanted them. Wow. The official FGCU Twitter account sent out the tweet heard 'round the world. Well, now Dunk City has an anthem - courtesy of Black Magic and Bambi. I can't wait for the next edition.
Miami defeated North Carolina 87-77 to win the ACC championship Sunday. More importantly, Miami coach Jim Larranga was videobombed during his post-game interview.

We’re Pretty Sure This Dunk Was Only Called An Offensive Foul At First Because The Refs Figured It Was Too Violent Not To Be.

The Shot of the Year? Frantz Massenat hits a 50-foot, half-court shot to give Drexel a win over Hofstra. Just watch the video.
Mike Moser, UNLV's leading rebounder (9.2) and second leading scorer (12.3), suffered a cringe-worthy elbow/arm injury last night in a 75-75 win over Cal. Enjoy this awesomely unpleasant video: Here is a still shot of injury: Amazingly, he did not suffer a fracture. Hell of a way to get rewarded for diving for a loose ball. He will be out just a few weeks due to a dislocated elbow.
