Florida Gulf Coast Conquers Georgetown

This is already one heck of a tournament for anomalies. Florida Gulf Coast, which received a No. 15 seed on Selection Sunday, won its NCAA tournament game against Georgetown Friday, with a 78-68 victory. The win makes FGCU only the seventh No. 15 seed to ever beat a No. 2. The historic upset was no last-minute miracle, either: what was only a two-point lead at halftime became as many as 19 points throughout the second half of the game, with the Georgetown Hoyas never coming closer than within five points down the final stretch. Not bad for a team in only its second year of NCAA eligibility.
