These days, it’s hard to define excellence without including our local university. Florida Gulf Coast University is displaying excellence anew with each game they play in the NCAA tournament.
They will face the University of Florida this Friday, March 29, in a bid to move up the championship brackets. We expect every TV set in every Marco Escapes property will be tuned to the game.
Given that the contestants are cross-state rivals, no matter who you choose to cheer for, you will be a Florida winner. Although, we would like to point out that the FGCU Eagles are the surprise team in the tournament. The entire University is less than 20 years old. It’s the first 15th seed team to make it this far in the history of the NCAA. It’s so unexpected that TV sports commentators regularly stumble over the name.
If you like to support excellence from surprising sources, join us in rooting for the FGCU Eagles. If you are staying in one of our superbly comfortable rental homes or condos on Marco Island, you will be supporting excellence in a place of excellence.
