In November of 2011, CUA got its 2011-12 season underway with a trip to Gainesville, Florida to face the Gators in the O'Connell Center. It was a chance for Cardinals sophomore Billy Donovan to match up against his father, Billy Donovan's team and an opportunity for the entire CUA program to catch an inside glimpse of the UF campus and all it had to offer.  The Cardinals were treated to a tour of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, they visited UF's basketball practice facility, which houses part of the floor from each of the Gators' trips to the Final Four, and they had the opportunity to play in one of the nation's toughest arenas for visiting teams, the O'Dome.

Check out some of the media coverage CUA received from its trip to Gainesville below.
