BY foxsports • November 20, 2011

Shabazz Napier recorded a triple-double with 22 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds as No. 4 Connecticut beat Coppin State 87-70 Sunday.

Napier's triple-double was the ninth in UConn history, the first since Kemba Walker did it last season against Maryland-Baltimore County. Walker sat in the front row behind the UConn bench Sunday.

Jeremy Lamb, despite spraining his ankle in practice Saturday, scored 25 points to lead the Huskies.

UConn (4-0) extended the nation's longest active winning streak to 15 games, a mark that is also the third-longest in school history.

Tony Gallo had 21 points for Coppin State (1-3).

Coppin State took an early 13-point lead and stayed relatively close for much of the game, thanks in large part to hitting 12 3-pointers.
