    You can add this to the schedule:

    Strong field will Battle 4 Atlantis
    Updated: December 3, 2013, 11:39 AM ET
    By Andy Katz | ESPN.com
    The Battle 4 Atlantis might end up with the strongest field of all of next year's nonconference November tournaments after the headliners were revealed Tuesday.

    The 2014 edition of the tournament in Paradise Island, Bahamas, will include Florida, North Carolina, UCLA, Georgetown, Wisconsin, Butler, Oklahoma and UAB.

    A day after beating then-No. 2 Kansas, Villanova defeated Iowa in overtime Saturday to win this season's event.

    There is a chance that at least five of the eight teams in next year's field will be ranked in the preseason Associated Press Top 25.

    The participants were set prior to the formation of the new Big East, meaning Georgetown and Butler will likely be put in opposite brackets. Tournaments have dealt with this in the past year. For instance, Creighton and Marquette, two other Big East teams, were put on opposite sides in last week's Wooden Legacy tournament.

    ESPN will be the broadcast partner of the Battle 4 Atlantis next season, sharing the tournament with AXS TV.

    Wasn't there talk of UF going to Kansas after our game last December as part of an SEC vs Big 12 challenge?

    I'm pretty sure we host Richmond again. I thought it was a two year deal, both games in the O'Dome.

    I will be in the Bahamas for the battle in Atlantis. I couldn't get a reasonable flight last year but I'm going for sure this year. My sister goes every year and has had a ball. Very close, personal setting where you can meet/greet all the athletes.

    Hoping to continue the home winning streak and a get a little revenge against UConn, in what I imagine is a December game.

    I am also keeping my eyes on Jacksonville for the NCAA subregional

    Yeah, that Atlantis tournament field looks very tough. I wonder if Murphy's request for a full year was successful. If not, the frontcourt will be relatively thin, of course, given the usual number of suspensions, the Gators are almost always short on players early in the year.

    Are we going to have a game in New York City? I'm still of the opinion we should have a game up there practically every year. I'm hoping that becomes a tradition we can plan for, with the game formalized more than a year in advance.

    I hope so. I've been spoiled getting to see them 3 years in a row (Rutgers, Yale, Memphis). I couldn't make UConn because I was driving back from Thanksgiving (and Storrs isn't all that close anyway).

    One thing that it's fun to do is speculate on homecoming games. Billy likes to take out of state players back to play a team near their home. That's why we played at Yale (for E. Murphy). He does it for everyone he can.

    This coming season, the only potential out-of-state senior is Tre Harris, who is originally from Fayetteville, NC. There are also juniors in A. Murphy (Rhode Island), E. Carter (NJ) and DFS (Portsmouth, VA).

    For Harris, there are obviously a ton of interesting possibilities near Fayetteville, NC (2 hours from Raleigh-Durham), but it's not clear we would schedule something for a guy who's not yet back with the team. Of course, where Finney-Smith is from in Virginia is right on the NC border, so maybe one trip covers two players. We also hosted Richmond this past season, so maybe we travel there for Finney-Smith. I don't think we do something for Alex this year since he is so new, but a trip back to New Jersey for Eli makes sense. We might also see a team from one of these places come to Gainesville as part of a home-and-home, where the return game is in the players' senior year.

    From a strictly basketball perspective, it is Always a good idea to have a good competitive game somewhere in the NorthEast each year, for two simple reasons: (1) the population there is massive, and (2) due to snow, indoor sports like basketball generate more attention that outdoor ones like Soccer, Football, Baseball and Tennis. Thus, big media interest.

    From a somewhat different, albeit also important basketball perspective, it is a good idea to regularly schedule games in Kentucky, Illionois, Ohio and/or Indiana for the simple reason that basketball interest in those areas is large also, of course, the same is true for North Carolina.

    "...in exchange for Florida playing at the Veterans Memorial Arena this year, JU will come to Gainesville each of the next two years. The game will mark a homecoming for Young, who starred at Providence Christian, though UF has played in the Jacksonville area each of the last two seasons. "

    You can go ahead and add them to the 2015-2016 schedule thread too :D

    I hope that the BB team takes them more seriously than the baseball team did last night.

    And here is a newsflash: Duke will not be playing the Gators in the O'Dome. Pretty easy call to make since they haven't played an OOC road game the last two seasons.
