Kansas clinches its 13th Big 12 title in a row

  Frank Mason has now been a part of four Big 12 championships at Kansas.

Kansas basketball, you are ridiculous.

The Jayhawks upended TCU on Wednesday night to clinch their 13th conference crown in a row. Kansas hasn’t won every Big 12 title outright – it only clinched a share against the Horned Frogs, though they still have three games left to play – but regardless, it’s a miraculous college basketball accomplishment that may never be broken.

Kansas tied John Wooden’s UCLA Bruins of the 1960s and 1970s with tonight’s win. UCLA won its league 13 years in a row between 1967 and 1979. The next-closest streaks: Gonzaga’s 11 consecutive titles (2000-2011); Connecticut’s 10 (1951-1960) and UNLV’s 10 (1983-1992).

Here are some of the best Kansas basketball moments of the past 13 years:

-Kansas wins its 1,900th game against Kevin Durant and the Texas Longhorns. The win also clinched the Jayhawks’ 50th conference championship.

-Kansas wins the national championship in 2008, knocking off both Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry in the NCAA tournament:

In 2011, Kansas won its 69th home game in a row, which was the longest Division I streak since 1992. The Jayhawks knocked off Nebraska.

In 2012, Kansas played its final ‘Border War’ game against Missouri and overcame a 19-point deficit to seal the win.

Kansas defeated Buddy Hield and the Oklahoma Sooners in three overtimes in early 2016.

Congratulations to the Jayhawks.
