Ahead of tonight’s game, FGCU forward Marc-Eddy Norelia talked about playing UNC, according to Scout.com. He said, “We’re just going to stay confident and believe in ourselves and give it our best effort. Anything can happen. As long as we do what Coach says, I’m pretty sure we can make it happen, if it’s possible.”
Even FGCU head coach Joe Dooley has confidence in his team. He also told the site, “They’re getting older. They’re starting to figure out they’ve got — they’ve played minutes. And now I think they believe in themselves and they believe that if we play the right way and we try to do some things we’re supposed to and we take care of the ball and we guard it, we can be a pretty good basketball team.”
We’ll have to see if they’re a “pretty good basketball team” tonight. The winner of this game will play USC or Providence on Saturday, March 19, in a Round of 32 game.
