Paul Hiepler didn’t play any minutes in Abilene Christian’s big win against Texas but the senior made the most of his March Madness experience.
On Saturday night, ACU won its first-ever NCAA tournament game in stunning fashion by beating interstate powerhouse Texas 53-52.
Can I get an AMEN!

After the game, Hiepler went viral when he was seen trolling Texas by doing the “horns down” gesture while rushing the court.
