Florida Gators men’s basketball
The basketball team of the Florida Gators men represents Florida’s University . The Gators compete in NCAA Division I’s Southeastern Conference (SEC). Home matches are played in the Exactech Arena in the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on the university’s Gainesville, Florida campus.
The University of Florida’s first basketball team took the court in 1915, but success was rare for many decades. The program didn’t possess a decent gymnasium until the Florida Gymnasium in 1950, didn’t hire a full-time basketball trainer until Norm Sloan in 1960, and didn’t play in a contemporary arena until the O’Connell Center started in 1980. Florida made its first postseason tournament appearance from the 1969 National Invitation Tournament and appeared in the NCAA championship in 1987, but constant success was elusive, and the Gators frequently found themselves at the bottom half of the conference standings.
Success was found by florida’s basketball program . Recently as Florida’s coach, Donovan headed the schedule to seven of its eight Southeastern Conference (SEC) regular season championships, all four SEC tournament championships, two of twenty-two NCAA Tournament appearances, four from five Final Four appearances, and back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007. Florida’s head coach since 2015 has been Mike White, who has led the Gators to three NCAA Tournament bids in his first four seasons in the school.
