In a night when LaceDarius Dunn became the Big 12 all time leading scorer, your Texas Longhorns appeared to find their legs in the second half winning 60-54. It was a gutty performance as the 'Horns appeared to struggle again offensively. But as we saw earlier this season, the Longhorns are a defensive team first and foremost. Once the defensive engine got churning, they found enough offense to pull out the W against the Scott Drew led Bears.
The Longhorns finish the conference season at 13-3 and earn the No. 2 seed in the Big 12 tournament. Texas will play the winner of No. 7 Baylor and No. 10 Oklahoma in the second round in Kansas City. Game time is set for 6 pm on Thursday evening. (Big 12 tournament bracket)
Game balls to Gary Johnson for his second half defense on Dunn, to Tristan Thompson for being a man among boys on the glass, and to Alexis Wangmene for clutch free throw shooting and a big time offensive rebound in the final minute.
This is your celebration thread. Hook 'em Horns!
