Woodard garners another honor

Tulsa freshman James Woodard was selected as the C-USA Freshman of the Week by a media panel representing the 12 member schools. Woodard earned his third C-USA Freshman of the Week honor this season, leading Tulsa to a win over crosstown rival Oral Roberts and recording a double-double on the road against No. 13 Creighton.

Woodard averaged 16.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game to lead Tulsa to a 1-1 record last week, including a win over crosstown rival Oral Roberts on Saturday. In the game at ORU, Woodard scored all 18 points in the second half to lead the Golden Hurricane to the comeback win after trailing by 17 points in the second half. He hit a three-pointer that gave TU its first lead with 4:40 left, and later clinched the victory by making free throws in the final seconds.

Against No. 13 Creighton, Woodard recorded his third double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds, in addition to four steals. This is his third C-USA Freshman of the Week award of the season.
