NORMAN, Okla. (AP) New Oklahoma coach Porter Moser isn't intimidated by the impressive track records of the coaches he'll face in the Big 12 as he steps in for the retired Lon Kruger.
Scott Drew just led Baylor to a national title. Kansas' Bill Self, who just signed a lifetime contract, has a national championship and has been to three Final Fours. Just two years ago, Texas coach Chris Beard led Texas Tech to the championship game. Bob Huggins took West Virginia to the national semifinals in 2010 - his second time taking a team to the Final Four. Kansas State coach Bruce Weber led Illinois to the national title game in 2005.
Moser quickly pointed out that he, too, has been to the Final Four - he took Loyola Chicago to the national semifinals in 2018 as a mid-major.
