Florida Gators basketball, which will begin the 2015-16 season unranked, will take the court for the first time under new head coach Mike White on Thursday night in an exhibition game against the Division II Palm Beach Atlantic Sailfish at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center in Gainesville, Florida.
The Gators have been looking forward to playing real basketball for quite some time, and following a “secret scrimmage” against Central Florida over the weekend, everyone is ready and raring to go for the contest. “It’s an exciting week to get started for the staff and I, but I’m sure a lot more exciting for our players, especially our seniors,” White said Wednesday. “It’s been a long preseason. We’ve put in a lot of time and work and energy. I know our guys have been chomping at the bit for probably more than 2-3 weeks now to play someone else.”
