Redshirt sophomore Enna Pehadzic led all scorers with 13 points and four rebounds while freshman Sydni Harvey tallied 11 points, snatched three boards and registered her first career block.
The Bulls (12-11, 3-6 AAC) built up a 13-10 lead at the end of the first quarter on the heels of back-to-back layups from Harvey and fellow freshman Luize Septe.
Septe finished with seven points and seven rebounds while sinking in a couple of crucial free throws down the stretch. She played all 40 minutes of the game.
As a team, USF shot just 32% (18-for-56) from the floor, 25% (4-for-16) from three-point range and outrebounded the Green Wave 50-43.
Leading 48-43 with only 24 seconds remaining, junior Tamara Henshaw blocked a big Tulane jumper that Septe hauled in to essentially seal the game away.
Henshaw added nine points, two assists and grabbed down an impressive 12 rebounds.
USF returns home to the Yuengling Center on Sunday afternoon against Houston. Tip is scheduled for 2 p.m. on ESPN2.
