KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Texas Longhorns break the streak to win their first Big 12 Championship.

The Longhorns beat the Oklahoma Sooners 91-86 at T-Mobile Center Saturday night.

It’s the first time in seven attempts that the Longhorns have won the conference tournament.

Texas reached the final game after Kansas withdrew from the tournament Friday and entered COVID-19 protocol.

The win means that Texas earned an automatic bid to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. The Longhorns will learn who they face in Indianapolis Sunday when the tournament bracket is released.
