Back in 2013, the Florida Gulf Coast University men’s basketball team made a name for itself when it put together a run to the NCAA Tournaement’s Sweet 16 while producing a bevvy of high-flying dunks.
The effort earned them the nickname “Dunk City,” and that year the Eagles knocked off No. 2 seed Georgetown 7-seed San Diego State before succumbing to Florida, who was a 3-seed, in the tournament’s second weekend.
But while their season ended there and their coach, Andy Enfield, soon after left to take over at USC, their legend never really died.
And Sunday, it was brought back to the forefront when Rayjon Tucker drove to the bucket and threw down a dunk that was so hard, so vicious, so powerful, that it broke the shot clock.
It was the only made shot for Tucker, who scored four points in FGCU’s 77-61 victory over North Florida. The win, by the way, came in the Atlantic Sun Men’s Championship final, which means the Eagles will be back in the dance this year.
