Lon Kruger isn’t focused on win No. 499 for the number sake
So when he was asked about win No. 499, a possibility if Oklahoma beats Oral Roberts tonight, the second-year Oklahoma coach quickly found a way to turn the focus of a possibility of a win back to his team.
“It’s something that just kind of comes around when you do it for a while,” Kruger said. “These guys are making progress. That’s what’s most important to us right now.
“Without question we played our best on Sunday against West Virginia. A little more purpose. Little more physical nature to it and we’ve got to keep improving both of those areas.”
Oklahoma beat West Virginia, 77-70, to take third-place in the Old Spice Classic over the weekend. Kruger wasn’t mentioning a lack of physical nature from the West Virginia game, though. The Sooners drew 27 fouls in that game. He’s talking about Oklahoma’s first loss of the season to Gonzaga. Kruger credited the Sooners with gaining their most growth from that loss due to the Sooners learning they can’t be pushed around so much.
