Shabazz Napier put up the 10th triple-double in UConn history Monday, leading lead No. 19 Connecticut to an 80-62 win over in-state rival Yale.

Omar Calhoun had 18 points and Niels Giffey added 15, all of them in the first half. He and Calhoun combined for eight of UConn's 11 3-pointers.

Ryan Boatright hit two more and finished with 14 points for the Huskies.

Justin Sears led Yale (1-1) with 17 points. Javier Duren added 15.

Giffey hit 3-pointers on four consecutive possessions midway through the first half to give the Huskies control of what had been a tight game early.
