Cal stays in the Bay Area for two more contests, hosting Idaho and traveling to Saint Mary's on Wednesday, Nov. 16, and Sunday, Nov. 20.

The following week, the Bears will play in the first of two midseason tournaments. Cal will travel to Los Angeles to participate in the Loyola Marymount Thanksgiving Tournament Friday, Nov. 25, and Saturday, Nov. 26 at Gersten Pavilion.
