Florida men’s basketball may be without a head coach, but that isn’t stopping the team from continuing the 2022 campaign and accepting an invite to the NIT.
We will host Iona in the O’Dome Wednesday 3/16 @ 9 PM.

The Gators will face the Iona Gaels on Wednesday at Exactech Arena with tip-off slated for 9:00 PM.
Florida finished the season 19-13 and dropped its first game in the SEC Tournament against Texas A&M.
The Gaels went 25-7 and won the MAAC regular season title before falling to Rider in the tournament championship game.
Iona is led by head coach Rick Pitino, who is in his second season with the program.
For Florida, with the absence of Mike White, associate head coach Al Pinkins will guide the team in the NIT. Pinkins has been White’s top assistant since 2018.
