JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --- While the North Florida Ospreys will not make back to back appearances in the NCAA tournament, the did receive a heck of a consolation prize.
The Ospreys will host the Florida Gators for the first time ever at UNF Arena on Tuesday night at 9 pm. The game will be a first round match up in the National Invitation Tournament. The announcement was made Sunday evening on ESPNU.
The Gators are a #2 seed in the tournament. The Ospreys are a #7 seed. However, the Ospreys will host the game because the O'Connell Center is undergoing renovations.
The last time the two teams played was November 8, 2013 in Gainesville, where the Gators beat the Ospreys 77-69.
