Florida Gulf Coast beats Fairleigh Dickinson in First Four

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Florida Gulf Coast showed once again that it can rise to the occasion in the NCAA Tournament.

It wasn't the same "Dunk City" gang that captured the nation's attention during an improbable Sweet 16 run in 2013, but the Eagles controlled the boards and blew past overmatched Fairleigh Dickinson 96-65 in a First Four game Tuesday night.

Marc-Eddy Norelia opened the game with a dunk, two of his 20 points on the night to lead the Eagles (21-13). FGCU never relinquished the lead, going on a 23-6 run in the first 10 minutes and opening a 40-19 lead at the half.
