The Cal men's basketball team will play Utah Valley at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Haas Pavilion in a first-round National Invitation Tournament game.

The Bears (19-13) are a No. 2 seed in the tournament. Utah Valley (20-11) is a No. 7 seed.

Cal fell short of an NCAA tournament bid after losing to Colorado in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament.

"We've got nobody to blame but ourselves," Cal coach Mike Montgomery said. "There were so many opportunities for us to make it a no-brainer, and we just weren't able to do that."

The winner of Wednesday's game will play the winner of No. 3 seeded Arkansas-No. 6 seeded Indiana State in the second round.

Tickets for Wednesday's game are available at CalBears.com or by calling (800) GO BEARS.
