The 2012–13 Florida Gators men's basketball team represented the University of Florida in the sport of basketball during the 2012–13 college basketball season. The Gators competed in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Southeastern Conference (SEC). They were led by head coach Billy Donovan, and played their home games in the O'Connell Center on the university's Gainesville, Florida campus.

The Gators finished the SEC regular season with a 14–4 conference record, earning their sixth SEC regular season championship. As a No. 3 seed in the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, the Gators advanced to the Elite Eight for the third consecutive year where they were defeated by Michigan.

Previous season[edit]

The Gators finished the 2011–12 season with a record of 26–11 overall, a 10–6 record in SEC play and lost in the Elite Eight round of the NCAA Tournament to Louisville.[1] Freshman shooting guard Bradley Beal, who finished second on the team in scoring average, decided to forgo his sophomore season and enter the 2012 NBA Draft. He was selected by the Washington Wizards with the third overall pick.[2]
