Before the Florida Gulf Coast's shocking upset over second-seeded Georgetown, the most notable performance by anyone associated with the Eagles belonged to coach Andy Enfield, who married former supermodel Amanda Marcum. During that win, however, guards Sherwood Brown, Bernard Thompson and Brett Comer all etched their names in NCAA Tournament lore. FGCU forward Chase Fieler didn't etch his name as much as he threw it down.
Leading by seven with under two minutes to play, FGCU broke Georgetown's full-court press with a deep pass to Comer. With 30 seconds remaining on the shot clock, the 6'3 sophomore drew the attention of two Georgetown defenders and then threw a gutsy, high-arching lob pass over his right shoulder to the cutting Fieler.
Fieler flew through the lane and threw down a one-handed alley-oop dunk.
"ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" Reggie Miller screamed along with the rest of the TBS broadcast team. Even Fieler was impressed with his hops on the highlight play.
Fieler slammed home another dunk earlier in the second half that gave the Eagles a 52-33 lead with 12:33 remaining. He finished with nine points on 3-for-7 shooting from the field.
But he produced plenty more Twitter reactions with the emphatic alley-oop jam.
