The Longhorns are on the verge of winning their first postseason tournament since 1978.

To reach the NIT Final, the Texas Longhorns had to do something they had not done all year — beat the TCU Horned Frogs. On Tuesday evening, Texas did it in convincing fashion, 58-44, after dropping both regular season matchups.

The Longhorns closed the first half on a 15-3 run to take a 14-point lead into halftime and, despite a push from the Horned Frogs, managed to hold a consistent lead.

So now all that stands in their way of winning their second NIT championship in school history is a matchup with the Lipscomb Bisons Thursday.

This is your post-game celebration thread.
