Gators complete 2016-17 non-conference schedule
Published on Monday, 8/8/16, at 5:55 p.m. Eastern.
Florida won’t play a true home game at the newly refurbished Exactech Arena until facing Arkansas-Little Rock on Dec. 21. The Gators will play home games across the state in cities like Jacksonville, Lakeland, Tampa and Orlando. The non-conference opponents include Seton Hall, Gonzaga, Duke, FSU and Oklahoma. Of those foes, the Seminoles are the only ones who didn’t make the NCAA Tournament last season.
