For the Texas men's basketball team, the music at the Big Dance has ended.

Arizona's Derrick Williams' free throw with nine seconds left in regulation time gave the Wildcats a 70-69 win over the Texas Longhorns in the third round of the NCAA mens basketball tournament. 

Jordan Hamilton led the 'Horns in scoring with 18 points, as Texas put on a furious comeback in the second half after trailing by nine at halftime.

The 'Horns finish the year with a record of 28-8.
