Florida basketball’s long road trip comes to a close on Saturday.
The Gators (7-3) face Charlotte (6-3) in Sunrise, Fla., to end their string of neutral-site games that began the year. With the O’Connell Center undergoing renovations, Florida’s first 12 games this season were all road games or at neutral-sites, spread throughout the Sunshine State.
One more game — the 23rd Orange Bowl Classic — at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, and then the Gators get to christen the renovated O’Dome with against Little Rock on Wednesday. At that point, it will have been over nine months since the Gators last played a home game.
That came on March 1, 2016.
