The University of Florida basketball team took the court in 1915, but success was rare for many years. The program didn't have an adequate gymnasium until the Florida Gymnasium in 1950, did not hire a full-time basketball trainer until Norm Sloan in 1960, and did not play in a modern arena until the O'Connell Center opened in 1980. Florida made its first postseason tournament appearance in the 1969 National Invitation Tournament and first appeared in the NCAA tournament in 1987, but constant success was elusive, and the Gators frequently found themselves in the bottom half of their conference standings.
Victory was finally found by florida's basketball program . Recently as Florida's trainer, Donovan led the schedule to seven of its eight Southeastern Conference (SEC) regular season championships, all four SEC tournament championships, fourteen 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 has led the Gators to three NCAA Tournament bids in his first four seasons at the school.
