Andy Enfield may be out in LA coaching USC now, but the legacy that he managed to build in one weekend in Philly still lives on.
Florida-Gulf Coast ran through and dunked over Georgetown and San Diego State in the span of three days in last season’s NCAA tournament, becoming the first No. 15 seed to make the Sweet 16 while becoming a national phenomenon after one NBCSports.com writer dubbed them #DunkCity.
Enfield moved on, but #DunkCity still have enough name cache that ESPN has apparently decided to use the school as one of their featured teams during Midnight Madness coverage on Friday, October 18th.
“FGCU and ESPN are still planning and finalizing the evening, and once we have more information we will pass it along,” FGCU sports information stated in a press release.
ESPN will have a crew on campus that night, with coverage running from 9 p.m. until 1 a.m.
