Creighton’s Jordan Woodsard is excited about his chance to return to the court next season.
Woodsard has been in and out of the lineup this season due to a foot injury, but he was able to get back on the court on Saturday against Providence.
Woodsards return to action is a major step in the right direction, but the team isn’t ready to start giving him a chance.
“I think it’s going (up) to be a big year for me.
It’s definitely a new beginning,” Woodsard said.
“This is definitely a lot different, but I feel like I’m more comfortable in the game.
That’s the biggest thing.
This is a whole new game for me, and I’m ready to go.”
That’s just what I’m hoping for.
I’ve been in this situation before, and there’s a lot of pressure.
I don’t know if it’s the same pressure, but it’s definitely different.
Hopefully I can do my best and come out ready for this.
“As for Woodsards potential role in the program, he said he is excited to get out there and get the opportunity.”
This season, we’ve been on a roll, and we’ll see how it goes.
I’m looking forward to it,” he said.
Woodards season was cut short by a torn ACL suffered last December.
After the injury, he was asked how much it affected him.”
There’s a ton of stuff to take care of, and that’s all that matters,” Woodsards said.
The 6-foot-7 Woodsard had a breakout year in 2016-17, averaging 18.2 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in 36.3 minutes per game.
