Lon Kruger is college basketball’s master builder. The Oklahoma Sooners, who play Michigan State in the NCAA tournament on Friday (TBS, 10:07 p.m. ET), are the fourth different program Kruger has taken to the Sweet 16.
In a sense, the Oklahoma coach is the Bill Parcells of his sport. Although Kruger has never won a title, as Parcells did twice with the New York Giants, few coaches across the major sports have experienced as much success with so many different teams.
