Watch: TAMU's Carter sinks game-winning 3 to beat DePaul

This may be Chennedy Carter's first time at the big dance, but she played like a veteran in Texas A&M's second round rally against DePaul.

The freshman standout scored a clutch 3 with a little over five seconds left, punching the Aggies' ticket to the Sweet 16 where they will play either No. 1 seed Notre Dame or ninth-seeded Villanova. 

Texas A&M struggled early on, heading into halftime trailing the Blue Demons 43-28, but made a huge comeback in the second half. Carter scored 32 of her 37 points for the night in the second half to lead the explosive resurgence.
