Deadspin’s favorite life guru Plies took a break from dispensing wisdom on Instagram to take in yesterday’s NCAA tournament game between Florida State and Florida Gulf Coast. Fittingly, the musician found himself drawn to his fellow musicians and wound up in the center of the FGCU band:
Dunk City is back, baby! FGCU is battling with UNF for the A-Sun title and its NCAA bid, and backup guard Rayjon Tucker brought the lightning and thunder on a massive dunk that turned the lights out on the shot clock.
Michigan State claimed its second win of the year after the 13th-ranked Spartans beat Florida Gulf Coast thanks in part to a clock blunder on the game’s final play that officials decided to let stand.
Florida Gulf Coast University, aka Dunk City, defeated the Providence Storm this afternoon down in the Bahamas.
