Chasing Cinderella: Dunk City, USA

Not even seven days ago, Florida Gulf Coast University was a small university in southwest Florida, not even an afterthought to the basketball community. Now, after two convincing wins in unbelievable style, FGCU has not only broke up everyone's NCAA bracket but also started a craze that has changed the image of Fort Myers forever from a retirement town and vacation getaway to the home of "Dunk City."

The Eagles will face their big brother, the University of Florida, in the Sweet 16 -- but this Cinderella isn't ready to back down.
