Release of the Florida Men's Basketball 2011-12 Non-Conference Schedule
The Florida Men's Basketball 2011-12 non-conference schedule was announced Wednesday and the team will have a challenging slate.
Head Coach Billy Donovan believes this is one of the toughest schedules he has seen thus far, but this line-up of games will help prepare the team for the NCAA Tournament come January.
"We're also looking forward to playing games in front of our great fans from several different areas of Florida, and we host some exciting matchups on our home court, as well," said Donovan.
The Gators start the season with an exhibition game, hosting Catholic University. The Cardinal roster includes Donovan’s son, Billy Donovan Jr.
