Tony Woods winds up at Oregon

The latest chapter in the Tony Woods saga has been written.

Norman Parker, his AAU basketball coach, says Woods, the former Wake Forest Center, will finally be transferring to Oregon. Woods spent the past year in Louisville after pleading guilty to an assault charge stemming from an altercation with his girlfriend.

Presumably waiting for Rick Pitino to offer. But that was never going to happen.

Parker told a Eugene, Ore., radio station that Woods “chose Oregon over multiple schools, including Louisville, Kentucky, and Texas.”

We feel so slighted.
