F Harris back practicing with No. 3 Florida

Posted: Updated:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida forward Damontre Harris, who was dismissed from the team last month, is back practicing with the third-ranked Gators.

Coach Billy Donovan says Harris is working with the scout team and involved in team activities, but the former South Carolina transfer won't play or be on the bench this season.

Donovan says it "would completely devalue our core values" if he allowed Harris to play this season.

Harris transferred to Florida after South Carolina fired coach Darrin Horn in 2012. He sat out last season under NCAA transfer rules and was supposed to make his Florida debut in October. But Donovan suspended him indefinitely for violating team rules. Harris was eventually released from his scholarship and given an opportunity to transfer, but he asked Donovan for another chance.
