NORMAN, Okla. —
The Sooners better find some quick. The Iowa State game marked the midway point in the conference season. At 5-4 in the league, it could be in worse shape. This, however, is the point in the year when improving teams make a push toward the postseason. Others start to fall apart.
OU knows all too well what the latter feels like. Improvements are required to experience the former.
What has to change isn’t a mystery.
“We have to move better, move the ball better, set better screens,” Kruger said. “Anytime time you’re not playing well offensively, you have to execute better. You have to do things, individually, to win battles, to get open, to finish shots, whatever the case may be. We just have to do all the little things better.”
OU was doing all those things as little as a week ago. Seven days, however, is a very long time in a college basketball season. The Sooners know that as well.
