BEST BASKETBALL UP-AND-COMERS

The men and women Eagles of FGCU

While they didn’t make it to the Sweet 16 as they did in 2013, the FGCU men’s basketball team made a valiant effort in the NCAA March Madness first round against the towering team of FSU, losing by a mere 6 points. Pretty impressive when you consider the Seminoles had one player who was 7-foot-4 and another who was 7-foot-2. The FGCU women also made it to NCAA play, making the University of Miami women work hard for a 62-60 victory in the final seconds of the game. These young Division I teams are providing Southwest Florida with electrifying competition and showing they can do battle with the BEST of them. Go Eagles!
