What had already been a difficult season for Oklahoma’s men’s basketball team became even more so last week when point guard Jordan Woodard suffered a season-ending knee injury.
Woodard, a senior from Arcadia, OK., had been a staple in the Sooners’ line up pretty much since day one. After leading Edmond Memorial to Oklahoma Class 6A state title games three consecutive years, he came to OU and nearly set a freshman record for games started. Logging 33 starts during the 2013-14 season, Woodard was just one start shy of the school record. His 152 assists that season were three shy of a freshman record as well. He did, however, set the OU freshman record with 146 made free throws.
In all, Woodard ended his career having played in 124 games (123 starts) with an average of 11.5 points, 3.79 assists, and 3.2 rebounds per contest. He dished out a total of 470 assists while running the floor for the Sooners.
