Canes Hoops Will Play Gators During ESPN's Tip-Off Marathon

The Gators and the Canes will continue the rivalry, but no, not on the football field. ESPN announced Monday that Miami and Florida will battle each other on November 17th in Gainesville as part of the networks tip-off marathon. This provides a young Canes team a great challenge against a Gators program that is highly regarded.

Billy Donovan’s group is ranked 9th in early polls, while Jim Larranaga’s Canes start off the season unranked yet again. Despite the rankings, it should be a really fun environment inside the O’Connell center because who doesn’t love some Canes-Gators trash talk. Mark your calendars.

Here’s the full tip-off marathon schedule
