The Iowa women's basketball team has suffered its first loss of the season.

No. 14 North Carolina defeated the 18th-ranked Hawkeyes (7-1), 79-67, on Thursday night in Chapel Hill, N.C.

North Carolina wasted no time — the Tar Heels opened the game with an 11-0 run. Sophomore Morgan Johnson eventually ended the streak when she put the Hawkeyes on the scoreboard with just over three minutes elapsed in the game.

The Tar Heels went into the locker room on a 15-5 run and led, 44-29, at halftime. In the second half, Iowa closed the lead to one point, but North Carolina's 16 second-chance points were too much to overcome.

For the Hawkeyes, Johnson recorded a double-double with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Iowa will play Kansas State Dec. 5 in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
