Kruger quietly leads Oklahoma back to prominence

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) The emcee at Oklahoma's year-end banquet, Toby Rowland, paused to recall a recent conversation with coach Lon Kruger.

The "Voice of the Sooners" asked Kruger when he'd last been assessed a technical foul. Kruger paused, then said it was back when he coached the NBA's Atlanta Hawks more than 10 years ago.

While demonstrative coaches fill the highlights and grab headlines, the 61-year-old Kruger remains in control. The only coach to take five different schools to the NCAA tournament has done it the same way each time - by using his calm demeanor, deep basketball knowledge and knack for cultivating relationships to get the most out of his teams.
