The Big 12 and the SEC both won and lost five games against each other Saturday. No. 25 Florida clobbered Oklahoma 84-52 in Norman.
OU is now 3-1 in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
Sophomore guard Rashard Odomes led Oklahoma in scoring with 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go with six rebounds.
“From our perspective, not much good there,” Kruger said of the Florida loss. “ I thought Florida did great. Mike White does a great job with them. They’re a really good team. Pretty much after the first 10 minutes, they dominated every aspect. Florida was much quicker with loose balls, the offensive boards, but we just didn’t win very many battles. We have to bounce back quickly and do a lot of things better. “Florida is good, and I’ll give them the credit for a lot of this, but we didn’t move the ball very well. We got hung up a lot and we didn’t finish opportunities when we had them. Again, we need to get a lot better.”
