Miami and Florida Will Re-unite Rivalry in Hoops

The Florida Gators announced they will play a home-and-home series against the Miami Hurricanes beginning this season.

The two teams have not played in the regular season since 2005, where the Gators beat the Hurricanes 77-67 in Coral Gables. They last squared off in the 2009 NIT in Gainsville that saw Florida beat Miami, 74-60. The Gators have the bragging rights, owning a 45-22 series edge.

The first game of the home-and-home series will be played in Gainesville this upcoming season on November 17. The Gators will travel to Miami next season on a date that has yet to be determined.

Led by head coach Billy Donovon, Florida is one of the elite programs in the country. The Gators won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007, and weaved their way to the Final Four last year before losing to eventual champion Connecticut.

Miami should field a competitive team this upcoming season. Head coach Jim Larranaga has done a great job since taking over the Hurricanes. Miami will be led by four transfers who are expected to make an immediate impact this upcoming season.
