Florida Gulf Coast, the regular-season and tournament champions out of the Atlantic Sun conference, became the first ever No. 15 seed to advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament with its 81-71 victory over No. 7 seed San Diego State on Sunday. The Eagles first shook up the Tournament, not to mention brackets across the country, when they beat No. 2 seed Georgetown 78-68 this past Friday. The Eagles next face No. 3 seed and fellow Sunshine State school Florida this Friday in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
