California's Crabbe leaving early for NBA

Cal's Allen Crabbe is headed to the NBA.

The junior wing averaged 18.4 points and 6.1 rebounds per game this past season and led the Golden Bears to the NCAA tournament, where they knocked off UNLV in the round of 64.

“It has been a dream of mine to play at the next level for a long time and I feel deep down in my heart this is the right decision,” Crabbe said in a statement. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Cal and learned a lot from my coaches and teammates. I will miss a lot of people at this University both in basketball and in school. I will always be a Golden Bear at heart.”

Crabbe was the Pac-12 Player of the Year by the league's coaches and NBA executives love his length and ability to shoot the ball from beyond the arc. He made 209 career 3-pointers and shot 38 percent in his three seasons in college.

There's a chance he could make his way into the first round of June's NBA Draft.
