South Florida ended the first half with an 8-0 run to lead 41-31 but the Owls scored the first seven of the third quarter. That's when Jenkins, who had four career 3-pointers, hit back-to-back treys to push the lead back to nine.
The Bulls, who were without high-scoring freshman Kitija Laksa who missed her second game with a sprained ankle, led by 12 entering the fourth quarter and led by double figures the rest of the way.
