It has become a tradition in New York to light up one of the most iconic structures in the world, the Empire State Building, with a team's colors after they win a championship.

Well, the LSU Women's Basketball team defeated Iowa Sunday afternoon in Dallas to capture the university's first-ever Women's Basketball Championship.

LSU dominated Iowa and in the end, it was the ladies in the purple and gold holding up the trophy as confetti rained down on them.
