COLLEGE ROUNDUP

Roundup: Last-second putback saves No. 21 UNLV

Quintrell Thomas grabbed Anthony Marshall’s airball under the basket and scored on a short hook shot with 1.2 seconds remaining to lift No. 21 UNLV to a 76-75 win over host California on Sunday.

The Runnin’ Rebels led for most of the second half, but trailed, 75-74, following two free throws by Cal’s Justin Cobbs with 11.9 seconds left. Marshall then rushed a long jumper that Thomas alertly grabbed and flipped in. Thomas was fouled on the play but missed the free throw. Justin Hawkins then blocked a 3-point attempt by Cobbs from midcourt as the buzzer sounded.
