Fairleigh Dickinson Knights
The Knights latest adventure into the NCAA Tournament was 11 years ago and things didn’t end up well for them.
They once again find themselves back and will require a win in order to get to the see the #1 seed in the East region.
The Knights entered the NEC tournament as the #2 seed as they finished with an 11-7 record. Counting their tourney wins, the Knights won 5 straight games to close the regular season out.
This team likes to get involved in fast paced as games as they were one of the best scoring teams in the NEC. Fairleigh Dickinson averages 77.9 points per game, which is 59th in the nation and in their semi finals and finals game, the Knights put in 80 and 87 points, respectively.
Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
The Eagles got deemed the name “Dunk City’ as their 2013 NCAA Tournament performance was an epic one. The Eagles became the first 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16 as they pulled off back to back upsets.
Their first victim, the #2 seeded Georgetown Hoyas. Florida Gulf Coast enjoyed many alley oops and monster dunks en route to a 78-68 victory. Two days later, the #7 seed San Diego State tried to slow down the dunking, but had no chance at doing so. Florida Gulf Coast went on to cruise to an 81-71 win.
This year was not easy for them by any means. In the title game, they took on a Stetson team at home and needed a come from behind performance. They took a 2 point lead late in overtime and used a giant block with just seconds to go to secure the win.
The key for them will be stepping up defensively. They allowed an average of 70.5 points per game and going up against a fast paced team like this, things could get out of hand if they don’t buckle down.
