Wake Forest has granted Tony Woods a release from its basketball program so that the 6-foot-11 center can "pursue other options," the school announced Monday. So if you're a coach looking for a junior who last month pleaded guilty to assault after an incident during which he allegedly caused his girlfriend to suffer a fractured spine, well, today is your lucky day.
"We wish Tony the best of luck in all his future endeavors," said Wake Forest coach Jeff Bzdelik. "Tony and I met a number of times and we felt this was the best course of action for him."
Woods averaged 4.6 points and 3.2 rebounds last season.
