Florida Gators basketball, in conjunction with the Southeastern Conference, has announced its completed schedule for the 2022-23 season on Wednesday. Florida will complete in three special events as part of its 13-game nonconference schedule with all but one occurring before league play begins on Dec. 28.

After the annual rivalry game at Florida State on Nov. 18, UF will take part in the 2022 Phil Knight Legacy where it opens against Xavier on Nov. 24 in Portland. Other teams in the field that the Gators could face include Duke, Gonzaga, Purdue and West Virginia, among others. The biggest nonconference home game of the year will be held Dec. 7 when UConn enters the Stephen C. O’Connell Center.

Florida will then face Oklahoma in Charlotte for the 2022 Jumpman Invitational on Dec. 20 before travelling to face Kansas State as part of the 2022 SEC-Big 12 Challenge on Jan. 28. In that game, the Gators will go up against former star forward Keyontae Johnson, who transferred to the Wildcats before the season.

SEC play opens Dec. 28 at Auburn. Florida will host former head coach Mike White when Georgia comes to town on Jan. 7, and it will conclude the season against LSU on March 4. That means it will not end against Kentucky as usual; instead, UF and UK will battle on Feb. 4 in Lexington, Kentucky, and Feb. 22 in Gainesville, Florida, the former of which will likely air on CBS.

In addition to its annual home-and-home series against Georgia, Kentucky and Vanderbilt, this year Florida will also see LSU and Texas A&M twice each in Year 1 under new head coach Todd Golden. The Gators will play consecutive SEC away games three times and consecutive home games just twice.

Let’s take a look at the entire 2022-23 schedule.
