With a run now through that will go down as one of the most blessed and unexpected in tourney history, I wanted to get an idea of what it meant to the players at Florida Gulf Coast. Every single one of them. These memories will change and enhance and grow glow as these guys get older. What they think back on five, 10, 20 years from now will in some ways never change and in other ways be altered.
The biggest story not only in this region, not only in this tournament or in college hoops, but in the entire sports universe, is Florida Gulf Coast. Dunk City. Florida Dunk Coast. Whatever we want to call it, this 15 seed is the darling narrative, the best story in college basketball to reach a wider audience since Butler made back-to-back national title games.
Doc Rivers has known Brett Comer since he was 10 years old, so nothing the Florida Gulf Coast point guard does is much of a shock. Especially those crazy lob passes that have garnered so much attention.
