The Eagles love to showoff and excite crowds with some highlight-worthy plays, which are mainly attacks to the rim. That’s what they’ve been doing all season long, and there’s no stopping them from living up to their nickname: “Dunk City”.
They’re heading to the NCAA Tournament for the second-consecutive year after claiming the Atlantic Sun tournament title, and are filled with talented and athletic guards like Brandon Goodwin who leads them in scoring with 18.2 points per outing.
Florida Gulf Coast is a +100,000 to win it all.
This team’s aggression and fearlessness to drive inside is admirable, but head coach Joe Dooley would rather see his boys register a W. And to do that, they’ll need to drain some buckets the outside, not just through dunks or penetrations. The Eagles, however, are just shooting 31.9 percent from three-point range this season.
