What they had to say: post Kansas vs. Oklahoma – Game 2
Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger on multiple players contributing to the win: “It’s kind of the nature of this season. Different guys different nights have stepped up. Romero is the cornerstone most of the time and Pledger most of the time and Amath most of the time. Other guys just stepping up different times so it’s great. A lot of people feel good about their contributions and I’m excited about the next game.”
Kansas coach Bill Self on what Oklahoma did differently in Saturday’s game from the one two weeks ago: “I thought both teams played better today than both teams did at Lawrence. When [Amath] M’Baye made two [three pointers] on the year he makes two and [Romero] Osby’s made four on the year and he makes a big one , and those are the things that are the difference in winning and losing.
“We go triangle and two and they’re late to throw them off, but I think we did an above average job of doing that, but they had some guys that stepped up there and made some shots.”
OU’s senior forward Romero Osby on the team’s energy: “We had a lot of energy from the get-go. Shoot around was really active, the guys were active. Everybody was anxious just to get out there and play.
“That’s the thing you love about college basketball. You have the crowd behind you at home and everybody has enthusiasm. Coach has been preaching that since Day 1, talking and helping each other and making that extra effort. I think that ended up being the deciding factor, the fact that we came out there and played hard and defended well.”
