AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Yvonne Anderson scored 25 points to go with nine assists and Texas beat No. 17 Texas A&M 79-64 Sunday, picking up a key victory to the Longhorns' NCAA tournament hopes.

Texas (18-12, 8-10) ended the regular season with three straight wins and finished out a season sweep of the defending national champions.

The Aggies (20-9, 11-7) head into the Big 12 tournament with three losses in their last four games.

Chassidy Fussell scored 19 for Texas. Kelsey Bone had 13 points and eight rebounds for Texas A&M.

The game was the last regular-season matchup between the rivals. Texas A&M leaves the Big 12 after this season to go to the Southeastern Conference and Texas officials have given no indication they plan to schedule the Aggies for nonconference games.
