Lon Kruger has led the Sooners back to the Sweet 16. Here are 10 quick thoughts on the Sooners big win in Columbus over the Dayton Flyers by a score of 72-66.

1. The 3 point shooting for both teams was NBA Jam on Fire level. The Sooners were 9 of 18 (50%) and the Flyers were 11 of 21 (52.4%)

2. Buddy Hield's block was one of the top plays in Sooner basketball history. Check it out and be amazed.

3. Jordan Woodard has ice in his veins. He hit 9 of 10 Free Throws and sealed the deal for the Sooners.

4. Frank Booker had the game of his life. He was huge with four 3 pointers.

5. The NCAA must fix the seeding. It was not Dayton's fault, but they simply CAN'T have the home court advantage they did against Boise St., Providence, and Oklahoma. Shame on the NCAA for allowing an 11 seed to have that advantage.

6. Isaiah Cousins can dance

7. Something still isn't quite right with Spangler after his lay-up miss against Iowa State in the Big 12 tourney. Hope he gets it figured out.

8. If I NEVER hear the word Scoochie again it will be too soon. His real name is Dayshon.

9. Still waiting on Buddy Hield to have a huge game scoring the basketball. It's been a while.

10. The Sooners are in the sweet 16 with a bracket that sets up really well for them. While not easy, Mich. State and a Louisville/Northern Iowa/NC State battle are what separates the Sooners and a trip to the Final 4.
