SAN JOSE, Calif. (Las Vegas Sun  & AP) -- UNLV is out of the NCAA Tournament in the Round of 64 for the fourth consecutive season after losing 64-61 to Cal on Thursday evening in the HP Pavilion. The Rebels finished the year 25-10.

Cal's Allen Crabbe scored 19 points in a dominant performance that was nearly as hard as it should have been.

Golden Bears big man Robert Thurman went 6-for-7 from the field, all of them dunks. UNLV's apparent advantage inside was nowhere to be found against Cal's zone.

Anthony Marshall and Justin Hawkins end their careers 0-4 in NCAA Tournaments, after the Rebels went more than 11 minutes without scoring a field goal against Cal.

First-time tournament participants Katin Reinhardt and Bryce Dejean-Jones were a combined 9-for-29.

The Rebels never really challenged for the game in the second half despite Cal giving them every opportunity. Legitimate gripes aside — the should have been called foul with 6 seconds left that wasn't called until there were less than two — UNLV has only itself to blame. The Rebels didn't play well enough to win.

The Mountain West is now 0-2 in this year's tournament and No. 5 seeds are 0-2 in San Jose alone as Oregon picked off Oklahoma State earlier in the day.

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.
