Florida Gators basketball announced the team’s 2012-13 non-conference schedule on Tuesday. Florida will face five opponents who took part in the 2012 NCAA Tournament while also participating in three events within the state of Florida – Navy/Marine Corps Classic, SEC/BIG EAST Challenge and Orange Bowl Basketball Classic.

“This is as challenging a non-conference schedule as we’ve had during my tenure at Florida,” head coach Billy Donovan said in an official school release. “We’ve made deep runs in the NCAA Tournament each of the last two years and a schedule like this helps expose us to a number of different styles of play that we could see later in the season, and also does a great job preparing us for SEC play.”

Below is the official 2012-13 non-conference schedule:

» The Gators will play four games in the state of Florida but outside of Gainesville for the second-straight year (Jacksonville, Tampa, Tallahassee, Sunrise).
» Twelve teams each from the SEC and Big East will each compete in the SEC/BIG EAST Challenge from Nov. 29-Dec. 1. Florida last faced and defeated Marquette 68-56 in the Sweet 16 round of the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
» Senior forward Erik Murphy will be able to play in front of friends and family during UF’s road game against Yale. He is from South Kingstown, RI.
» Florida will announce its 18-game conference schedule at a later date.
