Florida Gulf Coast strikes again, delivering yet another jaw-dropping alley-oop

Does anyone else get the feeling we missed a few dozen dunk of the year candidates this season because Florida Gulf Coast wasn't on national TV?

On Friday, the Eagles delivered the play of the tournament so far, a soaring alley-oop from Brett Comer to Chase Fieler as Georgetown was clawing its way back from a 19-point deficit. On Sunday, Comer did it again, this time connecting with Eric McKnight for a first-half tomahawk alley-oop off a screen and roll that may rivaled Friday's dunk for degree of difficult if not for drama.

McKnight followed that up with a big defensive play at the other end, blocking a layup attempt by Winston Shepard. Those were the best highlights Florida Gulf Coast produced, but it was five first-half 3-pointers that enabled the Eagles to remain within a point of seventh-seeded San Diego State at halftime.

Florida Gulf Coast is attempting to become the first No. 15 seed ever to win two games in the NCAA tournament. All six previous No. 15 seeds who won a game failed to make the Sweet 16.
