EDMOND — Edmond Memorial lost four starters from last year's Class 6A state runner-up basketball squad, but the Bulldogs still have point guard Jordan Woodard.

The University of Oklahoma commitment scored a game-high 22 points to lead Edmond Memorial to a 62-50 victory Saturday over rival Edmond North in the finals of the Edmond Open at the Huskies' gym.

Woodard scored 14 points in the opening quarter as the Bulldogs raced to an 18-10 lead after the first period and never trailed in the game.

The Huskies never were closer than seven points after the first quarter and trailed by as many 16 points early in the fourth period.

“I just wanted to come out and get us off to a great start,” Woodard said. “I didn't want to have to come from behind.”

Aaron Young, the only other Bulldog this season to see significant action on last year's state runner-up team, added 16 points.

Edmond Memorial (5-0) defeated Northwest Classen and Tulsa Memorial in the first two rounds of the tournament.

“We got a lot of new pieces,” Woodard said. “We are just starting to get our chemistry going.

“Each game (of the tournament) I felt like we improved significantly. Overall, I felt like this was a big step for us because it was a very tough tournament.”
