SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – Jordan Ratinho and Chase Foster scored 20 points apiece and San Francisco withstood a furious Utah Valley rally to earn a 78-73 win.

The Dons led by 22 points, 64-42, with just 9:02 to play before Utah Valley stormed back, cutting the margin to three, 74-71, with 1:40 left in regulation. However, San Francisco survived the onslaught to advance to the CBI semifinals.

In addition to scoring 20 points, Foster also hauled down a team-best eight rebounds. Jimbo Lull joined his teammates in double figures with 15 points.

The Wolverines, who reached the CBI semis a year ago, were paced by the 26-point effort of Kenneth Ogbe. Brandon Randolph posted 22 points and seven rebounds and Akolda Manyang had 10 points and 11 rebounds.

The Semifinal Round of the CBI will be played on Wednesday and Thursday. On Wednesday, North Texas will host Jacksonville State and on Thursday, Campbell will be at San Francisco. The winners will then meet in the best-of-three CBI Finals which begin on Monday, March 26. The Finals will air on ESPNU with Roy Philpott and Jason Capel on the call.
