This past March, the college basketball world was captivated by a group of young men from Florida Gulf Coast University. The scmall school from Fort Myers, FL made it all the way to the Sweet 16, where they were eventually defeated by the Florida Gators.

It was more the style of play that got them there that had everyone so enamored with the group. They dunked, alot, and often. They constantly ran the floor on teams and threw it down with some of the most amazing dunking displays that we’ve seen in quite some time.
