The Gators made some incredible memories the last time they played basketball at Madison Square Garden. So of course they made plans to go back.
Florida will take on West Virginia in the annual Jimmy V Classic on December 4th at MSG. The game will air on ESPN and tip at 9:00pm. The Gators last played in the event two years ago, losing to Duke; two years before that, they defeated Memphis in the event 77-75.
The last time the Gators played West Virginia was three years ago, and it was quite a day for Florida. Mike White’s team delivered a stunning 88-71 pounding of the Mountaineers in Gainesville for White’s first signature win over a then top-ten ranked WVU squad.
