Florida vs. Georgetown: No developments on finishing game

The Nov. 9 Florida-Georgetown matchup was postponed due to condensation on the court, but the teams may not be able to arrange a rematch.

Florida head coach Billy Donovan does not know whether the Gators and Georgetown Hoyas will schedule a makeup game after their Nov. 9 showdown was postponed at halftime. The game was played aboard the USS Bataan, but condensation made the court too dangerous. The game was stopped with Florida leading, 27-23.

Donovan and his players seem interested in finishing or replaying the game, but they also have little control over whether it will happen. One possible date, according to Hays Carlyon, is Jan. 2 in Jacksonville's Veteran's Memorial Arena. But would the Hoyas really travel all the way to Florida to play half of a basketball game?

Florida players have said that they wouldn't mind restarting the game. Mostly, they're interested in getting the extra experience against a ranked opponent. Georgetown (4-1) is currently No. 20, while Florida (5-0) is ranked seventh. The logistics of arranging a rematch will be up to the athletics directors, so for now, players and coaches must focus on the games currently on their schedule.
