De'End Parker added 20 points and seven assists, and freshman Mark Tollefsen recorded his own career high with 19 points for the Dons (7-6), who shot 56 percent from the floor. The win gave USF coach Rex Walters his 100th career victory.
Devin Golston led the Penguins (6-4) with 14 points off the bench, and Jammall Clark had 13. Dominican committed only 10 turnovers but was outrebounded 42-27.
The Penguins scored the first points of the game, but a 15-2 run put San Francisco ahead to stay. The Dons led by as many as 18 in the second half.
USF also won its only previous meeting with Dominican, in 2009.
