Final Score: (19) Connecticut 80, Yale 62

Hartford, CT (SportsNetwork.com) - Shabazz Napier recorded a triple-double as No. 19 Connecticut posted a 80-62 victory over Yale at the XL Center.

Napier scored 14 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 10 assists in registering the 10th triple-double in program history.

Niels Giffey came off the bench and shot 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the first half to help UConn (2-0) take a 39-24 lead into halftime. As a team, the Huskies shot 6-of-8 from beyond the arc in the first half and 11-of-17 for the game.

Omar Calhoun finished with a team-high 18 points, shooting 5-of-8 from the field and knocking down 5-of-7 from the free throw line. Ryan Boatright added 14 points, sinking both 3-pointers he attempted while shooting a perfect 6- of-6 from the charity stripe.
