Duck Report w Jordan Whitley: The Return of Tony Woods

Tony Woods will not face suspension from the Pac-12 Conference after he was ejected in the first half of Oregon’s overtime victory at Washington State for throwing a deliberate elbow.

The PAC-12 often takes a second look at flagrant fouls and can lay down further punishment, suspension, in addition to the ejection from the game. Woods played only 7 minutes of the first half and missed the entire second half/overtime against WSU, which must have been an appropriate amount of time to miss action.

Woods has started 25 of 26 games for the Ducks, averaging 9.7 points and 3.5 rebounds with the PAC-12 leading (21-5, 10-3) team. The senior also leads the team with 27 blocked shots.

Woods will be available for the No. 23 Ducks against California Thursday at Matthew Knight Arena. The senior center in the two team's last meeting, scored 14 points, 8 rebounds, 2 blocks and 3 turnovers.

The Ducks, however, have lost 10 in a row to the Bears.
