Texas, you've been warned. Billy Donovan's Florida Gators should be on notice, too.
"Dunk city is coming to Arlington, so everybody be ready."
That was the message delivered by Florida Gulf Coast's Bernard Thompson after his Eagles became the first No. 15 seed ever to reach the Sweet 16.
Through three rounds, the 2013 NCAA Tournament has not lacked for highlights (see Tim Hardaway Jr.) but no team has produced more shining moments so far than Andy Enfield's Eagles. In FGCU's second-round upset over No. 2 Georgetown, Brett Comer's gutsy alley-oop pass and Chase Fieler's one-handed jam put Dunk City, Fla. on the map and on Twitter.
“I’ve got some crazy dudes on my team,” Enfield said after that victory over Georgetown, per News-Press. "I don’t know where the ball is going half the time, and then usually it winds up in a guy’s hands, and he’s either dunking or laying it in. I’m like, 'Great pass, Brett.'"
In FGCU's upset over San Diego State on Sunday, Eric McKnight showed hoops fans that he too was one of Enfield's "crazy dudes" with a violent tomahawk alley-oop dunk. Again, the assist was delivered by Comer.
Here are some of the most jaw-dropping dunks by the Cinderella team out of Dunk City:
