The UNC women's basketball team lost the 25-21 lead it held at halftime and eventually fell 57-46 Thursday at the University of Denver.
 
The University of Northern Colorado (1-4) dropped its fourth game on the road, this time to in-state rival Pioneers (2-3).
 
UNC junior guard D'shara Strange led the Bears with 14 points, shooting 6-of-18 from the field. Senior forward Lauren Oosdyke was just behind Strange with 12 points of her own, going 4-for-8 shooting.
 
The 3-point shot gave the Bears trouble all night, as senior guard Victoria Timm was the only player for UNC to sink a shot from 3-point range. It was the only made attempt from distance in 12 attempts.
 
The Bears were within one at 39-38 when the Pioneers went on a 9-1 run to give them the 48-39 lead with four minutes left, a streak UNC was unable to recover from.
 
Giving UNC the biggest trouble defensively was DU sophomore guard Morgan Van Riper-Rose, who had 20 points and was the only Pioneer to score in double-digits.
 
Leading the team in rebounds was Strange with 11, with eight of those happening on the defensive end.
 
Timm and junior forward Kim Lockridge both forced five turnovers.
The Bears return home from their four-game road trip Sunday when they host North Dakota State. This is the first time the Bears have been home since their season-opener against Air Force Nov. 9.
Tipoff is slated for 1:05 p.m. at Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion.
