San Francisco (16-13, 8-8 West Coast) now has won four of its last five games while Loyola Marymount (8-19, 3-13) has dropped four of five. Jimbo Lull added 10 points for the Dons as he, Ferrari and Foster made 15 of San Francisco's 24 field goals.
The Lions owned a 42-31 rebounding advantage -- which included 17 on the offensive end -- but shot just 38 percent (24 of 64) from the field. Lull's jump shot made it 16-15 with 7:18 left before halftime and San Francisco never trailed again. The Dons led 29-25 at halftime and stretched it to 41-32 on a 3-point play by Foster. The Lions tied it at 43 and 45 but could never push past.
