With star forward Keyontae Johnson continuing to recover and positive news being shared about his health, Florida has decided to postpone its next three non-conference men’s basketball games.
The team, which hasn’t played since finishing up against Florida State last Saturday after Johnson’s fall, was slated to play Florida Atlantic this Saturday, Florida A&M Sunday, and James Madison on Dec. 22. However, the team released a statement on Twitter Thursday afternoon saying each of those three games were postponed.
“This has been an emotionally taxing for Keyontae’s family, friends and teammates,” Stricklin said in the release. “Our hope is that everyone impacted will take an opportunity to process those emotions and regroup ahead of the start of the new year.”
The team is next scheduled to play Dec. 30 against Vanderbilt to kick off SEC play.
