PARK CITY (AP) Teddy Dupay, who played on the Gators' runner-up team in the 2000 NCAA basketball tournament, made an initial court appearance Monday on charges of raping and kidnapping a woman at a Utah ski resort.
Dupay did not enter a plea Monday in 3rd District Court.
The 29-year-old Dupay is charged with felony rape, aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. In court documents, Dupay denies raping the woman. The two had been in a relationship for two years.
On June 19, Park City police were called to the Stein Ericksen Lodge, where a 28-year-old woman told officers that Dupay raped her in one of the rooms, according to court documents.
Prior to the rape, she said Dupay hit and kicked her 150 times.
She said he also forced her under a desk and told her if she tried to leave, he would kill her and her family, according to court documents.
Investigators say the woman had two fractured ribs, scratches on her back and bruises on her thigh, arm and shoulder.
