    DENVER (AP) -- Joseph Jackson scored 18 points and DaShawn Walker had 15 points and 12 rebounds to lift Denver to a 74-68 victory Sunday over Northern Colorado for the Pioneers' first win of the season.

    Steve Wetrich had 16 points and seven assists for Denver (1-3), which averted its first 0-4 start since 1962.

    Kirk Archibeque led the Bears (0-4) with 17 points. Sean Taibi had 13 points, and Will Figures added 12.

    Denver led by as many as 18 in the second half, but the Bears chipped away at the lead. Archibeque made a layup with 1:22 left to get the Bears within five at 68-63 but Denver pulled away again on free throws.

    Denver outshot the Bears 54 percent to 36 percent.
