Four straight trips to the Final Four for Stanford. No titles.

Tyra White's layup with 3 seconds remaining gave Texas A&M a 63-62 win over the Cardinal in a national semifinal Sunday at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Stanford wasted a 31-point effort by Nnemkadi Ogwumike, which included a layup with 9 seconds remaining that gave Stanford the lead.

White scored 18 points and Danielle Adams added 16 for the Aggies (32-5), who snapped Stanford's 27-game win streak and outscored the Cardinal 19-8 down the stretch.

Stanford entered the game averaging 79 points per game, but the Cardinal (33-3) played the game at Texas A&M's plodding pace. Stanford committed a season-high 22 turnovers and matched its lowest point total of the season.

Stanford lost in the national championship game in 2008 and last year. It lost in a 2009 semifinal.
