After beginning the season with four straight wins, the Connecticut Huskies remained steady at No. 4 in the latest college basketball rankings.

The top five of the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll was unchanged. North Carolina held on to its position as the runaway No. 1, followed by Kentucky, Ohio State, UConn and Syracuse. Duke, Lousville, Memphis, Florida and Baylor rounded out the top 10.

UConn, which led five Big East teams in the Top 25, defeated Coppin St. 87-70 on Sunday to move to 4-0. Jeremy Lamb managed 25 points despite a sprained ankle, and Shabazz Napier notched 22 points, 13 assists and 12 rebounds for the first triple-double of his collegiate career.

"He was really good today. I don't care who we were playing, he was really good," [head coach Jim] Calhoun said of Napier, who committed just one turnover in 39 minutes on the court. "He threw some terrific passes. He went in and rebounded. Obviously he made big-time shots."
