Florida’s 2013-14 non-conference men’s basketball schedule is beginning to take shape.

The Gators will play at Wisconsin to conclude a home-and-home series, and will play Kansas at the O’Connell Center on Dec. 10 as part of the initial SEC-Big 12 challenge next season.

In addition, according to CBSSports.com’s Jeff Goodman, Florida will face Memphis in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Sqaure Garden in New York City on Dec. 17.

Florida also will host Richmond and Florida State and play in a round-robin event that will include games against Middle Tennessee State, Arkansas Little-Rock, North Florida and Southern.

I’m told that the Gators are trying to line up another road game against a major conference opponent. In addition, the Gators could add a marquee opponent at the Orange Bowl Classic in Sunrise. It should add up to a non-conference schedule as challenging as 2012-13, which helped lift UF to a Southeastern Conference regular season title and No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Update: More dates and games were released by UF’s school website on Friday, including a game Dec. 2 at UConn, Nov. 25 at Jacksonville and Dec. 29 vs. Savannah State. Florida’s game against rival FSU will take place Nov. 29 at the O’Dome, the Friday night before the Saturday football game.
