Abrams, who was 9-for-18 from 3s coming in, had a tough go from beyond the arc, missing eight of his first 10 from there, although he did make the big shots down the stretch and finished 5-of-17.
But the 3-pointer of the game belonged to Harangody, who was 1-for-3 from beyond the arc coming in. There was a scramble for the ball far from the basket and the shot clock was winding down. Harangody grabbed the ball and let fly from 40 feet with the ball banking in as the buzzer sounded to give Notre Dame a 66-60 lead with 7:47 to go.
Notre Dame beat Indiana 88-50 in the opening round while Texas advanced with a 68-50 win over Saint Joseph's.
This was second meeting between these schools at this tournament as Texas beat Notre Dame 89-72 for fifth place in 1993.
