The Florida men’s basketball team is set to embark on its first ever trip to Manhattan, KS in January 2023. The game will take place as part of the annual SEC-Big 12 Challenge on January 28.
The two programs have matched up twice before with each team winning one game on a neutral court. Florida topped the Wildcats in Sunrise, FL in 2010 while Kansas State claimed victory in Kansas City in 2012.
The Gators are 6-3 all-time and 2-2 on the road in the challenge. Florida defeated Oklahoma State in the 2022 SEC-Big 12 Challenge.
Florida is currently scheduled to play in the Phil Knight Legacy Invitational in late November in addition to the inaugural Jumpman Invitational just before Christmas.
The 2022-23 Gators will be guided by new head coach Todd Golden who replaced Mike White following last season.
