UF to start early with Greene, maybe Dupay

GAINESVILLE -- Florida basketball coach Billy Donovan revealed the Gators' 2001 schedule Tuesday knowing one top guard will return and uncertain about another.

Sophomore guard Orien Greene successfully completed the necessary summer courses and is eligible to play this fall.

"I think Orien Greene had a great, great summer," Donovan said. "If the season were to start today, would he play? Yes. ... I was very, very proud and pleased with his progress academically this summer. He did a great job."

Donovan said he doesn't know the status of Teddy Dupay, who has been linked to a university police department investigation into gambling.

"I haven't heard anything," Donovan said. "I think, myself, probably just like you, we're all anxious to hear something one way or another."

Individual workouts begin today and Midnight Madness is Oct. 12. The Gators open Nov. 1 with an exhibition against Basketball Travelers, so a resolution to the issue soon would be helpful, Donovan said.

Florida faces 13 teams that participated in postseason play. The Gators' Nov. 8 game against Temple in the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic is a rematch of last season's NCAA Tournament game and the earliest game in Gator history.

Florida has a Dec. 5 matchup against Michigan State on ESPN and a Dec. 8 game against South Florida at 9 p.m. on ESPN2.
