Men's Basketball - Wed, Jul. 10, 2013

Oklahoma Baptist men's basketball added Eastern Illinois transfer Morris Woods to the roster for 2013-14.


Woods, a 6-3 guard from Chicago, was the leading scorer for Eastern Illinois last season at 11 points per game to go with 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. He averaged 13 points and shot 54 percent from the field in Ohio Valley Conference games.



Woods had 16 double-figure scoring games with three 20-point games – 25 against Tennessee Tech, 24 against Austin Peay and 21 against Murray State.


"We are very excited to add Mo into our program," said OBU Associate Head Coach Kyle Tolin. "He is a big strong guard who can really get to the basket, can handle the ball and is really tough in transition. He is another Chicago kid like Deangelo McIntosh and David Johnson who is really tough and competes. Mo is a great addition to the program who gives us another guy who can score the ball and defend at a high level."

Woods' signing completes the class for the upcoming season.


"We have signed eight guys for this upcoming year," Tolin said. "We are excited about the upcoming year. We have worked hard on trying to put this team together. These guys have worked hard all summer and made a commitment to their teammates, University and basketball program to compete at a high level and represent each other in a first class way. We have been impressed with the character and work ethic so far of the new guys as well as the five guys coming back and are hoping that we are pointed in the right direction for next year. OBU basketball has been very good for a long time and these guys understand their commitment to uphold the great tradition."
