Florida basketball sets home and road matchups for 2022-23 season

·2 min read

Florida men’s basketball, along with the rest of the SEC, got a better idea of what their schedules for the 2022-23 campaign will look like after the conference announced its member schools’ home and road designations on Wednesday.

The Gators are set to face the Georgia Bulldogs, Kentucky Wildcats, Vanderbilt Commodores, LSU Tigers and Texas A&M Aggies in home-and-home matchups. Things look pretty tough when it comes to Florida’s road-only slate against the Auburn Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks, Alabama Crimson Tide and Mississippi State Bulldogs, while its home-only opponent lineup features the Tennessee Volunteers, Missouri Tigers, South Carolina Gamecocks and Ole Miss Rebels.

The good news is that the Orange and Blue will only have to face four of the more highly ranked teams from the 2021-22 season — Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, and Tennessee — once during the regular season. The bad news is that the schedule overall looks like a pretty tough one overall for first-year head coach Todd Golden now that the SEC aspect has been rounded out.

Florida’s non-conference play starts with the Phil Knight Legacy tournament from November 24-27 before facing UConn on December 7 at home, with the Jumpman Invitational following from December 20-21. Then in 2023, the Gators take on the Kansas State Wildcats in the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on January 28. The remainder of non-conference schedule is still to be determined.
