Lon Kruger found the right mix to land Oklahoma (23-9) a strong finish in the Big 12 and a No. 5 seed in the West Region of the NCAA tournament. The Sooners will face No. 12 seed North Dakota State (25-6) on Thursday night.
With good reason Kruger was voted the Big 12 coach of the year.
While the Sooners on youthful, the Bison are all about experience. The Bison start three seniors, led by Summit League player of the year Taylor Braun. They also lead the nation in field goal shooting percentage.
