TAMPA — Alisia Jenkins had 16 points and 21 rebounds and No. 20 USF beat Drexel 73-58 in the second round of the preseason WNIT Sunday.
Courtney Williams scored 26 on 11-of-24 shooting. Laura Ferreira added 11 points for the Bulls (2-0), who had only 10 turnovers and six personal fouls. USF had 17 turnovers and committed 23 fouls Friday against Jacksonville.
"Defensively I feel like we followed the game plan a little bit better than we did last game," Williams said.
Rachel Pearson and Sarah Curran had 15 points each to lead Drexel (1-1).
USF struggled with the Dragons' zone offense for much of the game. Drexel hit seven 3-pointers in the first half and were 10-of-31 from long range for the game.
"I think they hit some really tough shots, especially late in the shot clock. And those are the toughest, when you defend for 24-25 seconds," USF coach Jose Fernandez said.
The Dragons got within 62-58 with seven minutes left in the game, but the Bulls closed with an 11-0 run.
"I thought the last six minutes of the game we really defended," Fernandez said. "We just went small and switched everything."
