Mighty Georgetown, a number two seed, fell to Florida Gulf Coast, a number fifteen seed, last night.  Florida Gulf Coast has only been eligible to play in the tournament for two years.  

The school's coach is Andy Enfield who holds the NCAA record for free throw accuracy from his days as a player at Johns Hopkins.  Enfield made a fortune with a software startup and then returned to basketball which one might be tempted to call his "first love" except ... well, except for his wife, who is a model.  Mrs. Enfield, aka Amanda Marcum, has appeared on the covers of Maxim, Elle, and Vogue. 

Only in America.
