Johnny Woodard Continues Strong Play
Woodard scored 26 points in the win over White Bear Lake, 21 versus Forest Lake, 18 against Andover and 25 in their lone loss to Eastview.
The Greyhounds finished 12-14 last season, losing to Andover 93-78 in the first round of the Class AAAA Section 8 playoffs as Woodard averaged 15.3 points and 5.2 rebounds per game as a freshman.
Woodard is hearing from UW-Milwaukee (which has extended a scholarship offer), Santa Clara and Iowa State, Montana, North Dakota and North Dakota State, but expect that list to grow with more exposure. He played for the Minnesota Pump N Run 15-and-under program, but missed some events, due to family obligations.
Woodard told Golden Sports.Net that he is working hard on his game.
"My defense and rebounding."
Woodard said that he isn't totally pleased with his team play, despite a good start.
"I feel that we can do better. Just got to work harder."
Woodard is not sure of his summer AAU plans.
"I'm not sure what team I am playing for, but I am definitely going to be playing."
Woodard moved to Duluth for Gary, Indiana before his teens.
