The Bears used a 6-0 run with under three minutes to play to pull back within two points on a Crabbe successful free throw with 1:11 to play. That was as close as they would get, however, as Stanford was quickly fouled on each of their ensuing possessions and converted their first free throw attempt before regaining possession off a rebound on each of their second free throw attempts to stretch their lead to five points and the 75-70 victory.
Crabbe led the way for the Bears with 20 points, while Harper Kamp contributed 19 points and seven rebounds in the game.
Stanford capitalized on 15 California turnovers, scoring 20 points off turnovers in the contest.
Chasson Randle led the Cardinal with 17 points in the game.
With the loss, Cal will be the No. 2 seed in this coming week's Pac-12 Championship in Los Angeles and will play the winner of the first-round game between Stanford and Arizona State on Thursday at 6 p.m.
Off to Berkeley for the women's basketball game... see you there. Go Bears!
