Florida-Ole Miss basketball game rescheduled

The Florida at Ole Miss men’s basketball game that was originally scheduled for Dec. 29 has been rescheduled for Jan. 24 at 7 p.m.

The game was postponed from its original date due to UF not meeting the SEC minimum of eight healthy scholarship players due to positive COVID-19 tests following the Christmas break.

The addition of the Ole Miss game to the schedule will create a busy week for the Gators. They’ll play Vanderbilt at home on Jan. 22, play at Ole Miss on the 24th, play at Tennessee on the 26th and then take on Oklahoma State at home on the 29th.

Florida leads the all-time series with Ole Miss, 68-47, including a 6-2 mark under coach Mike White.
