It's not even a contest considering his players are a mash of "who dats?": Florida Gulf Coast's Andy Enfield.
"Enfield, 43, is a former player at Division III Johns Hopkins (Md.), where he was the program's all-time scoring leader and set an NCAA record with a 92.5% career free-throw conversion rate, Enfield has long been known as a shooting guru."
"His shooting expertise and instructional videos helped get him assistant coaching jobs with the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics, but he also got a masters degree in business from Maryland."
"More than a decade ago, he helped to start up a contract management service for the health-care industry, called TractManager, which made him a fortune on Wall Street."
"Enfield also is married to supermodel Amanda Marcum Enfield, who gave up her jet-setting career to become a coach's wife and raise their three young children."
"Seven years ago, he decided to move to the coaching ranks full time, taking an assistant's job at Florida State. After learning about building a program from Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton, Enfield felt he was ready to step out on his own.
"Two years ago, he moved to FGCU, which was trying to make a name for itself in the Atlantic Sun."

Love his style of play. Cuts and more cuts with give and goes and great dunks that look like they should never happen. Oh yeah...they pass the ball a lot for the open look. Has Lyons watched the video yet. :))

Something tells me the guys playing on this team are going to get their fair share of Girls Gone Wild in Tampa Bay, St. Pete, and Naples in the coming weeks..........
Amanda Marcum Enfield... What an ugly woman... I pity the poor guy....

BEAR DOWN boys... The best is yet to come....
A guy I played intramural hoops with knew him from Johns Hopkins. My friend was on their JV team, but said Enfield was automatic if open. He also said he had a very elaborate pregame warm up routine that he never strayed from.

I would not mind attending FGCU. What a nice location.
From Yahoo! Sports: Tease: In just its second season of eligibility for the NCAA Tournament, Florida Gulf Coast University has its eye on a first-round upset of No. 2 seed Miami.
My wife is a graduate student at Johns Hopkins and cannot get sports let alone college hoops fandom. I find myself constantly explaining (defensively) so many bad things in college sports. Some are minor - why did Monty shove his player, "well honey he's a very respected coach but the game is intense...." or Shabbaz is a year older than thought ("I have no idea, I agree honey, it's idiotic")....but they are still negative. There ares so many bad stories out there. Story after story - coaches fired, kids took money from agents, Kentucky builds 5 star resort that's exclusively for their athletes, academic scandals, recruiting violations... after reading three and out, it seems like if the coach isn't corrupt then the institution is. It is a continuous stream that tears down anyone who has even a whiff of heroism. Penn State was just the worst. "Why were the players punished?". "I have no idea honey, it really sucks."
Lost in all that noise - the lives of honest student athletes in honest programs, working their butts off. Coaches who change lives but maybe never get over the hump (Craig Robinson for example). Little programs that don't have a hope of ever wining a championship where the players graduate into careers instead of leagues.
FGCU is the best story in sports I can recall in a long, long time. Reading between the lines: the entire team, coaches and players are having a blast. Can you imagine Ben Howland, Mike Kryzewski, Tom Izzo (or Sean Miller for that matter) saying publicly "we don't take ourselves too seriously" and meaning it?! I think Donovan better be worried. These FGCU kids have nothing to lose and will be lose and relaxed... the pressure is 100% on Florida, which is by far, the superior team and will likely handle them.
Someone need to come up with the "1980 Award" (U.S. Hockey) or the "Jamaican Bobsled Award" or something that recognizes a team or event that embodies all of the finest and noblest aspects of athletic competition. It should be the most prestigious award in all of sports.

There you go Wine. Upvote.
Maybe so about Johns Hopkins, but they have had one of the strongest Lacrosse programs for a thousand years or so........
I know how difficult it is to get in that school. Either you're a smart guy as well or just some brilliant woman's boy toy. Maybe you should get a vote as one of the biggest underdog success stories.
That was a good post and I vote upvote as well.
Their chess team is simply amazing!
Ummmm ok Basketball talk here. Are you aware that they beat Florida?? Vellly Interesting. Will they be the best BB team in Florida?
They beat Miami not Florida. By the way the state of Florida has three teams in the sweet 16. Not too shabby.
She is brilliant... i seem to have her fooled so far....we do have LaCrosse shirts... they are some sort of sick dynasty in LaCrosse.
