For the first time, the Texas Longhorns are Big 12 Tournament champions.

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Conference Tournament-Oklahoma State vs Texas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Pitted against the red-hot Oklahoma State Cowboys, Shaka Smart’s Texas Longhorns jumped out on top early and never relented the lead, topping the Pokes 91-86 to capture their first ever Big 12 Tournament championship.

Texas was previously 0-6 all-time in Big 12 Tournament championship appearances, so not only does this tournament title signify a new peak for the Shaka Smart era and one of the more notable moments in the program’s history, but the Longhorns will now enter the NCAA Tournament riding the momentum of a five-game winning streak.

This is your celebration thread.
