COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Jordan Hooper scored 21 points and Lindsey Moore had 20 points and 10 assists to help Nebraska to a 74-63 win over Texas A&M on Monday night in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

The sixth-seeded Cornhuskers used two big runs in the first half to build the lead and never trailed in the second half to earn their first trip to the round of 16 since 2010. Nebraska will face the winner of Tuesday's game between second-seeded Duke and No. 7 Oklahoma State.

Nebraska (25-8) led by 16 before a 13-4 run pulled the Aggies within 64-57 with less than 3 minutes remaining. But Hailie Sample made a pair of layups before the Cornhuskers added six free throws to hold on.

Third-seeded Texas A&M (25-10), which won the national title in 2011, was led by Adrienne Pratcher's 17 points.
