NORMAN, Okla. —
"We were excited for this season back in the summer, just because we knew people were saying we wouldn't be that good since we're young," Spangler said. "The team worked hard, we were always in the weight room. On the flip side, now we just need to keep getting better."
A post-season run may not be the only thing that could result from such an attitude. Now an established starter for OU, Spangler is looking forward to a future that might hold a professional career in basketball.
"That's my goal," he said. "I want to give everything I can to this program and I want to get my degree. In the two years I have left here, I'll just have to work hard toward that."
