Nik Stauskas and Michigan are headed back to the Sweet 16.

Stauskas had 17 points and eight assists to lead the Wolverines to a 79-65 victory over Texas in the third round of the NCAA tournament on Saturday.

Jordan Morgan added 15 points and 10 rebounds as Michigan (27-8) advanced to next week's Midwest Regional semifinals in Indianapolis. The Wolverines will face the winner of Sunday's Mercer-Tennessee game in Raleigh, N.C.

Michigan lost to Louisville in the national championship game a year ago.

Isiah Taylor scored 22 points for Texas on 8-for-22 shooting. The Longhorns (24-11) outrebounded the Wolverines 41-30, but got off to a slow start and never recovered.
