OU's Jordan Woodard has torn ACL, season and career over with Sooners

OU's heart-and-soul, Jordan Woodard, will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL in Saturday's loss.

Oklahoma guard Jordan Woodard tore his ACL in the Sooners’ 80-64 loss to Iowa State on Saturday, OU confirmed Sunday evening in a press release.

Woodard suffered the injury in the second half in Ames, and head coach Lon Kruger said Woodard would be re-evaluated when the team returned to Norman.

“We are so grateful for Jordan and what he has brought to our program the past four seasons,” said OU head coach Lon Kruger in the release. “The work ethic, determination and dedication he has displayed throughout his career have been key factors to our success and growth as a team.

“It is unfortunate to lose him for the conclusion of the season and his collegiate career. We will continue to support Jordan and use our resources to aid him in the recovery process.”

Woodard was a four-year starter for the Sooners, averaging 11.5 points, 3.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. He was a part of three NCAA tournament squads, including the magical run to the Final Four last season.

Woodard was voted an All-Big 12 honorable mention member by league coaches during his junior season (2015-16) and was a 2016 Preseason All-Big 12 honorable mention selection.

The Sooners will look to snap a seven-game losing streak Tuesday evening when Texas comes to Lloyd Noble Center.
