2014 Battle 4 Atlantis bracket released; Florida Gators to open tournament vs. Georgetown

The Florida Gators will take on the Georgetown Hoyas in the opening round of the 2014 Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, which will be held from Nov. 26-28 at the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Guaranteed to play three games in as many days, the winner and loser from the Florida-Georgetown game will take on either Wisconsin or UAB. With consecutive victories, the Gators would play in the tournament’s championship game.

UF is 2-2 all-time against GU. The teams last met on the deck of the USS Bataan in the 2012 Navy-Marine Corps Classic in Jacksonville, Florida. The game was halted at halftime due to condensation collecting on the court and did not resume.

Florida’s first game will tip on Nov. 26 at 9:30 p.m. and air live nationally on AXS TV, which is available on major television providers including AT&T Uverse, Charter Cable, Xfinity TV, DirecTV, DISH Network, Time Warner Cable and Verizon FIOS, among others.

Should the Gators lose that showdown, both of their remaining contests would remain on AXS TV. If Florida wins, its latter two games would air live nationally on ESPN.

    Hi Adam,

    AXS TV is not a familiar station to me. I have Bright House cable. I know they have an affiliation with Time Warner. Do you know if this gave will be on Bright House?

    Headed down there, booked today. Anyone else? Btw, Atlantis has some pretty absurd deals if you buy the ticket packages… rooms are about 40% off. I called to figure out how to buy tix and planned to stay at a cheaper hotel nearby but the rates if I bought the tix to the games (all of them or just UF games) made room rates very attractive. Let’s ride!

    Channel 340 on Directv. Awesome tournament! Hope we get a win and play Wisconsin in the 2nd round. Should be great experience early in the season for our boys.
