    The Florida Gators men’s basketball staff reflects Florida’s University in the game of basketball. The Gators compete in NCAA Division I’s Southeastern Conference (SEC). Home matches are played in the Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center on the university’s Gainesville, Florida campus.
    Success was scarce for several years, although the University of Florida basketball team took the court in 1915. The program didn’t possess an adequate gymnasium before the Florida Gymnasium in 1950, didn’t hire a full-time basketball trainer until Norm Sloan in 1960, and did not play in a contemporary arena until the O’Connell Center started in 1980. Florida made its first postseason tournament appearance from the 1969 National Invitation Tournament and appeared in the NCAA championship in 1987, but consistent success was elusive, and the Gators frequently found themselves at the bottom half of their conference standings.
    Success was eventually found by florida’s basketball program under head coach Billy Donovan, who was hired in 1996. Recently as Florida’s coach, Donovan headed the schedule to seven of its eight Southeastern Conference (SEC) regular season championships, all four SEC championship championships, two of twenty-two NCAA Tournament appearances, four out of five Final Four appearances, along with back-to-back national championships in 2006 and 2007. Florida’s head coach as 2015 has been Mike White, who’s led the Gators to three NCAA Tournament bids in his four seasons at the school.
