LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Erica McCall had 23 points and 12 rebounds, Karlie Samuelson scored 15 points and Stanford outlasted Texas for a 77-66 victory on Friday night to reach the Lexington Region final of the NCAA Tournament.

The second game this season between the schools ended with another Cardinal win despite the team shooting 42 percent and committing 14 turnovers. But second-seeded Stanford (31-5) made 8 of 14 in the third quarter and held Texas to 33 percent to grab a 54-49 lead entering the fourth and eventually extending it to double digits by making 7 of 8 free throws during one late stretch.

The Cardinal also out-rebounded the third-seeded Longhorns 41-35 to earn its second straight Elite Eight appearance, and will face top-seeded Notre Dame in Sunday's regional final. The Irish routed No. 5 seed Ohio State 99-76 in the other semifinal.

Brittany McPhee added 12 points in Stanford's seventh straight win.
