    UL Basketball Ragin' Cajuns lose Orien Greene

    Loss creates huge void at point guard position

    LOUISIANA La. A challenging season just got harder for Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns.

    Two days after a 96-51 road loss at Kansas dropped his team to 3-4, coach Robert Lee began searching for a new point guard on Monday following news that senior Orien Greene is sidelined indefinitely.

    Greene broke a non-weight bearing bone in his lower right leg early in the Kansas contest and will miss this week's trip to play North Carolina State. His availability for future action is uncertain.

    "Well," Lee said, "the news continues to get worse. We're not sure how long Orien is going to be out, so we're going to play 4-on-5 ..."

    Maintaining a sense of humor is valuable for Lee, who then took a serious look at the crucial position for his team.

    "We'll insert either Derek Gray or Spencer Ford into the lineup and adjust the way we need to play," Lee said. "Without Orien, there's no way we can run the up-tempo game we like to have. The game needs to be in the 60's for us to succeed."

    Losing Greene early at Kansas was a shock to the Cajuns, who were going to be hard-pressed to pull off an upset in the best of circumstances.

    So exactly how fast can that Woodfox kid get here now? He doesn't really need to finish high school, does he?
