Andy Enfield just became one of the most desirable coaches in all of college basketball.
If you don’t know who that is, he’s the head coach of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, the No. 15 seed that just knocked off No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA tournament.
The school he’s coaching at?
It has existed since 1991. The star of Friday night’s performance was Eddie Murray, a 6-foot-8 senior that threw down a series of vicious dunks on the Hoyas. He was born in 1989. He’s older than the school.
The program that Enfield is currently coaching only became Division I six years ago, and he already has them in the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. That’s impressive.
It’s impressive enough that Enfield may have finally become the most desirable member of his household.
You see, Enfield’s wife is a super model. Her name was Amanda Marcum before she got married. She’s a super model. Legitimately. She’s been on the cover of Maxim. She’s not unattractive.
And now, thanks to how quickly and how effectively he’s built that program, he may be more wanted nationally than his wife.
Now THAT is impressive.

LaMelo Ball vs. Zion Williamson was insane, but it wasn’t quite crazy enough to wake up the sleeping toddler that Williamson’s coach is holding in his arms:
This is peak AAU basketball.
It will never be more AAU than that.
In a showcase game in the adidas Uprising event in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, LaMelo Ball — the youngest member of the Big Baller Brand — faced off with Zion Williamson, who is a force on youtube and a highlight machine.
The crowd was insane for the game:
According to a report from ESPN, there were even concerns about whether or not the game would actually be allowed to be played; the police and fire marshall considered shutting the event down.
Williamson, of course, put on a show in warmups:
At the time of this posting, there were more than 60,000 people watching a livestream of the game on BallIsLife’s facebook page:
(UPDATE: It’s now over 70,000)

Just what you wanted to see, a video of former Michigan State star Denzel Valentine throwing an alley-oop off the glass to current Michigan State star Miles Bridges in a Pro-Am in Michigan:
A day after Grayson Allen threw an alley-oop to Trevon Duval for Duke’s entry into the #DriveByDunkChallenge, Kentucky’s team of freshmen decided to do one of their own:
That would be, in order, Johnny David, Jarrod Vanderbilt, Nick Richards, PJ Washington and Kevin Knox abusing some poor sap’s rim somewhere in Lexington.
But was that better than John Calipari’s attempt?
