Now that Andy Enfield's Florida Gulf Coast University men's basketball team made it to NCAA Sweet Sixteen round, Amanda Marcum Enfield is once again making headlines.
Enstars reported last week that Amanda would be the next Katherine Webb of television and sports, and it seems as if that may be true. The once-beauty model has been trending worldwide since her husband's team made it to the NCAA Tournament 2013.
FGCU has been upsetting top teams during March Madness and Amanda has been noticed at the games cheering on her lover.
Amanda, believed to be one of the hottest NCAA tournament coach's wife, is a supermodel who has once landed on the cover of Maxim Magazine. She has also graced the pages of Elle and Vogue and can be seen in ads for Victoria Secret and Armani.
On Friday night, the television cameras naturally focused on Amanda as she cheered through the final minutes of FGCU's historic 2013 NCAA Tournament upset of Big East champion Georgetown. Florida Gulf Coast became only the seventh No. 15 seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament to defeat a No. 2 seed, the Eagles prevailing by a 78-68 victory.
Amanda abandoned modeling fulltime when Andy, who began as an entrepreneur, shifted his focus to college basketball in 2011. The couple met back in 2003 when Andy offered to drive Amanda to a NCAA tournament game in Boston where Oklahoma State was playing. Six months later the couple got married.
"I thought he looked like a great driver that would give me a free ride," Amanda said jokingly. "And we had lots of things in common-especially sports-and we talked and talked about that. I thought he was really fun and very confident."
FGCU became the first No. 15 seed in NCAA history to advance to the regional semifinals with a 81-71 win against San Diego State on Sunday in the South Regional Men's Basketball matchup.
They will play the Florida Gators in the Sweet Sixteen round on Thursday.
"We had lots of things in common - especially sports - and we talked and talked about that," Amanda told the Naples Daily News in April 2011. "I'm a sucker for sports guys, obviously."
