Florida vs. North Florida, Game Thread: Gators get 2013-14 underway against Ospreys

Florida's 2013-14 basketball season begins with a weird 3 p.m. game.

Phil Sears-USA TODAY Sports

Florida's men's basketball team plays North Florida at 3 p.m. today in a game televised by Sun Sports — in other words, a perfunctory season opener is going to be even more obscure than usual.

If you're in Gainesville, you may well be going to this game, like I am, because it's Homecoming and there's not a lot else to do today. If you're not, well, I'm going to try to provide plenty of tweets to keep you updated on what's going on with Florida's battered basketball team in its first game of the season, and I'll try to have a fairly comprehensive recap up by the middle of the evening.

If you have ESPN3, and you're not in an SEC state, you should be able to watch online.

What will you be looking for? Who are you hoping will have a big game? Are you totally okay with me not previewing a tiny North Florida team that ranked among the worst five teams nationally in defensive rebounding and failed to beat any team of repute in 2012-13? (I hope so.) I look forward to reading your comments when I get back from the game.
