NORMAN, Oklahoma - Ryan Spangler has always been a personal favorite.

For starters, a star high school quarterback at Bridge Creek. And he’s always been a standup guy – answers the softball questions but also the hard questions, win or lose (hello Cam!).

After last night’s thrilling win over Texas we talked about his tender-at-times knee, Buddy Hield’s greatness, and the big game coming Saturday with Kansas.

In last night’s critical win over Texas, Spangler played 38 minutes, went 4-for-5 from the field, had 8 points and an important 10 rebounds.
