The Florida State Seminoles will take on the Massachusetts Minutemen. With a recent SEC championship and a third-straight Elite Eight appearance, the Florida Gators will be featured in Sunrise for the eighth year in a row against a team to be determined.

The 2013 MetroPCS Orange Bowl Basketball Classic will be held on December 21 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, FL. Game times will be announced at a later date.
