There's good news for local University of Florida basketball fans.  Due to the ongoing construction at the O'Connell Center, the university will move two of its pre-conference games to the Bay Area.

The November 17 game with St. Bonaventure will be played at the Lakeland Center. Then the following Monday, the Gators will play Belmont at Amalie Arena.

In all, Florida's first 11 games will be away from Gainesville.
