This coming season, the Gators will play in the Emerald Coast Classic, which will consist of 2 games over 3 days from Nov. 27 to Nov. 29.
Per college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, the Gators now have their first-round opponent. They will reportedly play Illinois, while Oregon and Iowa State meet up in the other semifinal:
