Wake Forest center Woods to transfer

Wake Forest center Loren Woods, who struggled in the shadow of Tim Duncan for two years, said yesterday that he will transfer to another school.

"Loren and I have had several hours of very healthy dialogue and conversations since the season was over," Wake Forest coach Dave Odom said in a telephone interview.

"We went to great lengths to say that he is very, very happy at Wake Forest," Odom said. "He is heading for graduation. Everybody likes him, including the basketball staff. The decision was his."

Odom admitted, however, that Woods has "not made the improvements in basketball we would like to have seen."

Woods completed his sophomore season averaging 8.8 points and a team-high 7.1 rebounds a game.

* Two new criminal counts were filed against Avondre Jones, who was thrown off the Fresno State basketball team when he was charged with using a gun and samurai swords to threaten, assault and rob a man. An amended complaint accused Jones of threatening to kill or injure a woman in October 1996. Jones and Georgetown transfer Kenny Brunner are charged with making threats and assaulting Collin DeForrest with a deadly weapon.

* Texas Tech improperly paid 66 current athletes' fees to take the Texas Academic Skills Program test and has reported the violation to the NCAA, which was already considering whether to punish the school, an official said. The fees, ranging from $18 and $127, have been reimbursed by the athletes who received them. The error was discovered as part of a joint investigation with the NCAA enforcement staff.
