Florida Gulf Coast Basketball History

Florida Gulf Coast began to play in the 2002-03 season and was an instant success playing as a Division II independent, the Eagles were beasts at home, going 48-3 their first three seasons and reaching the NCAA Tournament in the team’s third year.

In 2006, Florida Gulf Coast applied for Division I status and began the NCAA’s four-year transition plan that started in 2007-08. The Eagles struggled at the beginning as a Division I school, going 40-82 in their first four NCAA seasons. Andy Enfield took over the program for the 2011-12 season and led the NCAA team to a 15-17 record the first year. The Eagles had a dream season in 2012-13, winning the ASUN conference tournament and a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

FGCU captured the attention of the nation, defeating Georgetown and San Diego State to become the first No. 15 seed to reach the Sweet 16. The Eagles lost to Florida in their Sweet 16 game. USC threw a lot of money at Enfield and Joe Dooley took over the program and led FGCU to the NIT and CIT in his first two seasons.

Returning to the NCAA Tourney & the NIT

The Eagles returned to the NCAA Tournament in 2016, winning a First Four game, but fell to No. 1-seeded North Carolina in the next game. Florida Gulf Coast returned to the NCAA tournament in 2017 and gave Florida State a battle but fell 86-80.

The Eagles were invited to play in the NIT in 2018. Dooley was lured away by East Carolina for a second stint with the Pirates after the 2017-18 season. The Eagles gave the head coaching job to Michael Fly, who had been an assistant since 2011 After a couple of down years, the Eagles won 21 games in 2021-22 and were invited to play in The Basketball Classic.

That wasn’t enough to save Fly’s job and he was fired after the 2021-22 season, which saw the team finish 22-12.

Florida Gulf Coast NCAAB FAQs

Has Florida Gulf Coast had any players drafted by the NBA?

Due to the Eagles not playing until the NBA Draft was reduced to two rounds, FGCU has not had any players drafted by NBA teams.The school’s two players to make the NBA, Brandon Goodwin and Rayjon Tucker, were both undrafted.

Why are Florida Gulf Coast teams called the Eagles?

FGCU takes pride in its “environmental stewardship.” According to the university, the Eagle “was adopted as the official symbol to reflect FGCU’s mission and purpose. The Eagle serves to identify not only the physical environment of Southwest Florida but also the University’s relationship with it. The Eagle embodies the characteristics of freedom, strength, spirit, intelligence, grace and the pursuit of excellence.”

Who coined the phrase ‘Dunk City’ to describe FGCU’s 2012-13 team?

During the 2012-13 season, the FGCU sports information department used the phrase “Dunk Tank” in game notes and as a social media hashtag. After the Eagles upset Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament, College Basketball Talk tweeted ‘Apparently FGCU is located in Dunk City, Florida.’ Nineteen minutes later, FGCU’s official Twitter account wrote ‘When people ask where FGCU is, just tell them Dunk City, Florida!’ The phrase took off from there.
