Every March, the magic of the College Basketball NCAA Tournament is one of the few events in modern sports where a team virtually unheard of can rise up and shocked the world by pulling-off an upset of a perennial powerhouse.
Last year, that team was the Florida Gulf Coast, the 15th-seeded Cinderella squad that knocked off the Georgetown Hoyas and San Diego State Aztecs in March in their the run to the Sweet 16.
They would eventually bow-out to the Florida Gators, but still were one of the feel-good stories of the season last year, and they’re getting some pretty sweet bling for their accomplishments:

On the top of the rings, “Sweet Sixteen” sits next to the FGCU athletics logo. The sides are even better; the school’s Eagles mascot is flanked by “Dunk City” while being wrapped in a sash that reads “1st #15 Seed”, which is a tribute to FGCU being the lowest seeded team ever to advance to the Sweet Sixteen.
