Florida Vs. Jackson State Game Thread: Gators Hit Hardwood To Begin 2011-12 Season

Loading Scores

Hey, I get to write these for basketball, too!

All of your broadcast information is after the jump; your thoughts in the comments. I will be at the game and recapping it afterward.

Kickoff Time

7:00 p.m. Eastern

TV, Radio and Streaming Information

The game will be broadcast regionally on Fox Sports Florida. You can also watch it streaming online through Watch ESPN. The radio broadcast will also be available on the Gator Radio Network or on Sirius 219 and XM 203.

What to Watch For

Can Patric Young anchor Florida inside against a tall Jackson State frontcourt? Will Brad Beal be as hot from the field as he was in Florida's exhibition win over Catholic? And will the Gators be able to rain down threes and run away from another less talented opponent?

Game Thread Guidelines

Try to remember that, despite how emotional watching a Gators game can be, there's no reason to be abusive. Rant, curse, or exult if you must, but keep the personal attacks to a minimum.

Furthermore, and I will stress this until I am blue in the face or until FlaGators admits that I'm right, comments with both a subject line and text are much easier to read when scrolling through a thread. Try to keep that in mind.
