The University of Florida women’s basketball team is off to it’s best start since head coach Cameron Newbauer took over the program before the 2017-18 season. The 7-1 Gators face an enormous task in an attempt to improve that mark as they are now scheduled to face No. 5 ranked South Carolina in Columbia to open SEC play.
The Gators were originally scheduled to play at 4-1 Vanderbilt, who were projected to finish 13th in the league according to the conference’s coaches, but the Commodores are dealing with a Covid-19 situation within their program.
Florida was originally slated to play South Carolina on February 25, but the Gamecocks were in a similar position with their matchup with Ole Miss postponed. No make-up date has been announced for the Gators-Vanderbilt contest at this point.
Florida and South Carolina will tip off at 4:00 PM from Colonial Life Arena on Thursday.
