The Bears finally win the Big 12 Basketball Tournament, albeit a fictional one.

Nice to see the fictional committee was impressed enough to give us the overall #1 over Kansas, since we beat them 2 out of 3 times this season.

Almost a shame Texas missed the NCAA Tournament, but those are the breaks.
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier
