St. Petersburg's Kevon Woods has transferred to Lakewood, Spartans basketball coach Anthony Lawrence Sr. confirmed.

Woods, a 6-foot-5 guard, gives Lakewood an additional scorer to pair with Anthony Lawrence Jr., a Miami commit and the Spartans' top returning player.

"I'd heard Kevon wanted to come here since the season ended," Lawrence Sr. said. "He's going to help us a lot."

Woods is the second Green Devil to transfer in the past two weeks. Terrell Burney left to go to Boca Ciega.

One player who plans to stay with the Green Devils is Darius Banks. The sophomore became one of the team's top scorers during its run to the Class 8A region final last season. Banks had a lower stress fracture in his back that kept him out the past three months. He resumed playing with Nike Team Florida last week.
