AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Brooke McCarty scored 23 points and No. 3-seed Texas got a put-back basket from Joyner Holmes with 4 seconds left to the send the Longhorns to the Sweet 16 for the third year in a row with an 84-80 win Sunday over No. 6 North Carolina State.

Lashann Higgs had given Texas a two-point lead when she made one free throw with 8 seconds left but missed the second. Holmes grabbed the rebound, missed her first shot, grabbed the rebound then made the second to seal the win. Holmes finished with 16 points and nine rebounds.

Texas (25-8) had to overcome a 31-point scoring effort by Wolfpack senior guard Miah Spencer, who fouled out with 1:03 to play when she tangled with McCarty, the Big 12 player of the year, away from the ball.

Dominique Wilson added 27 points for the Wolfpack but a go-ahead basket with 8 seconds left was waived off with an offensive foul when she charged Higgs.

North Carolina State (23-9) missed going to its first Sweet 16 since 2007.
