Full UF schedule taking shape


With the announcement of four more games on ESPN’s Super Tuesday slate, Florida’s 2014-15 men’s basketball schedule is continuing to take shape.

The Gators will play in four Super Tuesday matchups on ESPN. Only one is at home, but it’s a big matchup Jan. 20 against LSU (ESPN, 7 p.m.). The Tigers return standout rising sophomore forwards Jordan Mickey and Jarrell Martin and are continuing to stockpile talent in recruiting under third-year coach Johnny Jones.
