Woodson leaves Vols, plans to transfer

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall says sophomore forward Dominic Woodson has left the Volunteers and plans to transfer to another university.

Woodson played in four games for the Volunteers this season averaging 3.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12 minutes per game. He transferred to Tennessee this summer after leaving Memphis.
