Gerald Henderson finally will find out what the second weekend of the NCAA tournament is like.

Henderson scored 24 points and hit three free throws in the final minute to help Duke beat Texas 74-69 on Saturday night in the second round of the East Regional.

Kyle Singler added 17 points and Jon Scheyer added 13 for the second-seeded Blue Devils (30-6). They reached the round of 16 for the first time since 2006 and will face third-seeded Villanova (28-7) on Thursday night in Boston.

A.J. Abrams scored 17 points on 5-for-13 shooting for the Longhorns (23-12), who rallied from a late 10-point deficit to tie it twice in the final 2 minutes -- the last time coming when Gary Johnson's free throw with 1:07 remaining made it 69-all.

Nolan Smith hit two free throws with 47 seconds left to put Duke up 71-69, and the Longhorns missed two chances in the final 40 seconds to tie it.
