Lon Kruger building basketball powerhouse at Oklahoma

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger could make this the best of his many success stories.

The man who has spent three decades fixing struggling programs has done it again. Now, the Sooners are on the verge of becoming a powerhouse after three straight trips to the NCAA Tournament.

With Big 12 Player of the Year Buddy Hield returning after considering going pro and three other starters returning, Kruger's team is expected to make a deep run after reaching the Sweet 16 this past season. Kruger, as usual, is taking a low-key approach to the high expectations.
