Florida basketball has gone nearly two months into the season without a true home game as the O’Connell Center underwent a wall-to-wall renovation.
That is set to change Wednesday.
On Tuesday, the team got a walkthrough of the arena, which is essentially brand new everywhere except for the exterior of the building.

The arena opens Wednesday night against Little Rock, just one game before conference play begins.
The Gators went 8-3 while playing its “home games” in a variety of cities in Florida, including Jacksonville, Lakeland, Tampa, Orlando and Sunrise.
