NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma point guard Jordan Woodard is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, effectively ending his college career.

Woodard injured the knee during the second half of Saturday’s 80-64 loss at Iowa State. The school announced Woodard’s status Sunday in a news release after he underwent tests and evaluations.

The 6-foot senior started every game his first three years at Oklahoma, including the Sooners’ national semifinal against Villanova last season. He was Oklahoma’s leading scorer this season with 14.6 points per game.

Woodard ranks 14th in school history with 1,440 points, fourth in assists, fifth in made free throws, seventh in steals, eighth in free throw percentage and eighth in minutes played.

The release said Woodard is expected to graduate in the spring.
