The Bears incased their lead to as many as 16 points in the second quarter and led by 13 at halftime.

Boston University cut the margin to four points in the third quarter, but got no closer than seven points in the fourth quarter.

The Bears shot just 38.8 percent from the field, but committed only seven turnovers compared with 16 turnovers for the Terriers. Cal outrebounded BU 42-33.
