Allen Crabbe had 19 points and nine rebounds, reserve Robert Thurman scored all 12 of his points on dunks and 12th-seeded California held off fifth-seeded UNLV 64-61 in the second round of the NCAA tournament Thursday.
Buoyed by the crowd support of a strong contingent so close to Berkeley, the Golden Bears (21-11) held the Runnin' Rebels (25-10) without a basket for more than 11 minutes in the second half. Cal turned a tie game into a nine-point lead during that stretch and withstood a late UNLV push for its first tournament win since 2009.
The Rebels rallied to within a point in the final seconds before missed free throws and a costly inbounds pass sealed the loss.
Bryce Dejean-Jones scored 15 points and Anthony Bennett shook off a poor start to finish with 15 points and 11 rebounds for UNLV, which beat Cal 76-75 in Berkeley on Dec. 9.

There were plenty of memorable moments from the start of yesterday's 2013 NCAA men's basketball tournament but one that might have been forgotten involved University of California forward Allen Crabbe.
As UNLV's Bryce Dejean-Jones attempted to save a ball from going out of bounds, he rocketed the ball at Crabbe where it hit Allen in a sensitive area:
Redshirt junior guard Justin Cobbs helped lift California to its first NCAA Tournament win since 2010 by downing UNLV, 64-61, at HP Pavilion in San Jose on Thursday.
The Bears must upgrade the interior of the offensive line in this year’s draft. We break down the film of California lineman Brian Schwenke to see if he might be a long-term option in Chicago.
