The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles survived the play in game, with actual rather ease, and will now set their sites on becoming the first 16 seed to defeat a #1 seed.
Their opponent….the North Carolina Tar Heels.
North Carolina won the ACC as they topped Virginia, another 1 seed, in the title game.
Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
It wasn’t too long ago the Eagles were deemed the name “Dunk City” for their performance in the NCAA Tournament.
Florida Gulf Coast had no problem in the play in game taking down Fairleigh Dickinson as they routed them 96-65. The Eagles raced out to a 40-19 half time, as that perfectly described their M.O. this season. They attacked the rim and put a lot of pressure in the faces of the Knights, to make their lives extremely miserable.
Florida Gulf Coast was led by Marc-Eddy Norelia, who scored 20 points. Following along side with him was Julian Debose and Christian Terrell, who each had 14.
The Eagles do have 1 player left from the Dunk City team and while they obviously are looking to make history, Florida Gulf Coast is certainly no pushover in this spot.
North Carolina Tar Heels
The Tar Heels have always been a tournament team, but this time around, this team is extremely hot.
North Carolina has rattled off 5 straight wins since their loss at Virginia and even got their own bit of revenge in the title game against them with a win.
UNC had zero problem in their first two ACC games as they routed Pittsburgh and Notre Dame as well. This team has been clicking on all cylinders in terms of scoring as they put up 88 and 78 in those wins.
Their game against Virginia is something Florida Gulf Coast can use. The Cavaliers slowed the game down as it was much lower scoring than a typical North Carolina game as a 61-57 score was the final. While that typically isn’t the Eagles game, that is how you get to North Carolina. A track meet would result certainly favoring the Tar Heels.
CBB Betting Trends:
Free Florida Gulf Coast Eagles vs. North Carolina Tar Heels CBB Prediction:
This is a game where the Eagles may prove to be the toughest 16 seed in the field.
Let’s not get carried away by any means as they will still likely get killed, but they still have a chance here to really keep this one closer than the spread will indicate.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Small Lean UNC -22.
Florida Gulf Coast needs to slow it down, regardless if that isn’t their style of play. They keep it close early, but eventually the Tar Heels pull away.
