Special report on the Florida Gators basketball team:
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida men’s basketball unveiled its 2021-22 non-conference schedule on Thursday, with seven home dates at Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on top of a challenging set of neutral-site games and a road trip to Oklahoma.
The Gators’ home slate is highlighted by the annual rivalry with Florida State and a visit from Oklahoma State in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge. The Gators will open the season vs. Elon on Nov. 9 and also welcome UW-Milwaukee, Troy, Texas Southern and Stony Brook to Gainesville next season.
Florida tips off its home-and-home series with Oklahoma in Norman on Dec. 1, picking up after the start of the series was delayed last season. The Gators’ previously-announced neutral-site events include two games at the Fort Myers Tip-Off, along with a contest vs. Maryland in Brooklyn and another against USF in Sunrise, Florida.
Season tickets for the 2021-22 season are now on sale, including these seven non-conference home dates along with nine Southeastern Conference games.
Game times, television information and any exhibition games will be announced at a later date.
