PEORIA, Ill. (KWWL) -

The University of Northern Iowa Women's Basketball team dropped its third straight decision on Friday with a 75-61 loss to Bradley.

UNI (15-10, 8-6 MVC) kept things tight in the first half, despite going just 1-for-10 from 3-point range, and trailed the Braves 28-24 heading into halftime.

In the second half, Bradley (14-12, 5-9 MVC) caught fire from the field, shooting 60.6% in the final frame, to pull away from the Panthers by a final of 75-61.

Bradley Sophomore Kelsey Budd led all scorers with 22 points, while three other Braves scored in double figures.

Panther Senior Katelin Oney, playing in her 100th career game, led the way for UNI with 14 points, while collecting five rebounds and five assists. Freshman standout Brooke Brown finished with 12 points, including three of the Panther's four three-pointers in the game. Senior Rachel Madrigal also finished in double-figures with 11 points, while leading UNI with six rebounds.

The Panthers will return to action this Friday in the McLeod Center, when they take on the Creighton Bluejays in a battle for fourth place in the conference standings.
