OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Oklahoma's defense suffocated Wichita State in an 80-48 win on Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Sooners held the Shockers to 6-for-30 shooting in the second half. Overall, Wichita State shot just 24.2 percent - the fourth-lowest field goal percentage by an Oklahoma opponent during the Lon Kruger coaching era started in 2011.
"Guys just have an understanding of their roles, what they need to do to help the team to be effective defensively," Kruger said. "It has become contagious. Guys have a lot of pride on that end of the floor."
