Bracket set for Gators basketball "Battle 4 Atlantis"
Florida will open play in the "Battle 4 Atlantis" basketball tournament against Georgetown, ESPN announced today.
The game will be a rematch between the Gators and Hoyas, who last played a game that couldn't be completed. The teams met in the 2012 season-opener in a game held on the USS Bataan in the Navy-Marine Corps Classice, but the game had to be cancelled at halftime due to condensation on the court. The Gators led 27-23 at the time.
The Battle 4 Atlantis tournament will be held Nov. 26-28 at the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
In a second game, Wisconsin will face UAB, with the winning and losing teams from the two games respectively moving on to play each other. All teams in the event will play three games in three days.
