Catching up with Lon Kruger – pre Bedlam
Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger has had a week of adjustments after losing one of his starting freshmen guards to a broken foot.
The media caught up with Kruger and talked changes to the starting lineup, the void of Buddy Hield and more.
Below is the transcript:
Media: How is Buddy feeling?
Lon Kruger: He feels good. Not as good as if he was playing but he’s going to bounce back. Players helped him a lot. Surgery went well and he’ll be there as best he can, no doubt about that.
Big game on Saturday.
Yeah, huge game. Second third of the conference season and it’s a game where they’re in first and we’re a game back and it’s a big game. Tough challenge for our guys. It will be a great atmosphere there and Oklahoma State’s playing terrific. … They look very good doing it so we know how tough that will be.
They’re playing a lot better than the first time they came around
Probably everyone is, hopefully. That’s five weeks ago. Hopefully everyone has improved. Certainly they’re on a five, six, seven game winning streak. They’re playing very well.
Is there something in particular that they’re doing?
I think individually they’re playing five weeks more improved and five weeks more experienced. They’re playing with confidence. A lot of guys, when you win ball games, play well and when you win close games, it really promotes better play and they’re doing that.
What kind of options do Cam and Je’lon bring?
