Lon Kruger addressed Saturday’s incident at Texas Tech where Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart shoved a Red Raiders fan in the game’s final moments.

“We talk to them all the time about that but everyone in the country is talking about it a little bit more,” Kruger said of reminding his players not to get involved with any kind of back-and-forth with a fan. “It’s just the idea of keeping it between the lines and hopefully everyone learns something, not just those who are involved but everyone in the country.”

Kruger said he hasn’t heard anything from fans in 30 years, hearing the roar of the crowd but not specific things said by individual fans. “That’s pretty impressive because sometimes in a stall in play, you hear a few things,” Sooners senior forward Tyler Neal said.(The Oklahoman)
