They’re a five-man unit,” head coach Lon Kruger said of Tech head coach Chris Beard’s squad. “They’re good individually on the ball. They help each other. They’re very disciplined.

Tech isn’t just first in the Big 12 in that category with 33.4, they were first in the nation through Jan. 1 with 32.8, 2.3 points ahead of second place. The Sooners are just coming off their worst shooting performance this season after they finished 36.2 percent from the field against Oklahoma State.
