MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Cameron Ridley's buzzer-beating layup lifted Texas to an 87-85 victory over Arizona State in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday night.

Jonathan Holmes missed badly on a long 3-pointer for the seventh-seeded Longhorns in the final seconds, but Ridley emerged from the scrum with the ball and banked it in as time expired over the outstretched fingers of an ASU defender.

The call stood after a video replay, giving Texas its first win in the NCAA tournament since 2011.

Ridley finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Longhorns (24-10).

Jordan Bachynski scored 22 points for No. 10 seed Arizona State (21-12), which was making its first tournament appearance since 2009.
