Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Jordan Woodard Featured On Cousy Award Watch List

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Pardon the interruption from the daily dose of college football news as we interject a quick word from college hoops. The Oklahoma Sooners begin their chase for a post season win with an exhibition match-up this Friday against Washburn. With four returning starters, this high powered offense looks to balance things out by adding a rim protector on defense. One of the key returnees is none other than sophomore point guard, Jordan Woodard.

Throughout his freshman year, Woodard averaged 10.3 points per game along with 4.6 assists after starting all 33 games and narrowly missing a handful of school records. Hoping to build upon past success, the talented Edmond native finds himself listed on the Bob Cousy Award Watch List along with 35 other players from across the country. Each year, the Cousy Award is given to the nation's premier collegiate point guard.
