Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger on Ryan Spangler.
"“No question that he led the way. Ryan is very competitive. He got in foul trouble against Kansas and he didn’t like not playing a factor in that ball game. The first half of the game he was such a good player and did some things. I thought in the second half Ryan just really just took over the game and did some great things offensively, rebounded the ball like crazy. The guys have so much respect for how he approaches it because he brings it every day and doesn’t really care about anything except the team.”"
