Shabazz Napier's triple-double helps UConn rally to beat Coppin State
HARTFORD, Conn. -- Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun thought a sprained ankle would keep leading scorer Jeremy Lamb out of the Huskies' game against Coppin State so he had a quick chat with point guard Shabazz Napier an hour before the tipoff."He basically said run the team, be a leader, stay out of foul trouble and make sure we win the game," Napier said.
