The UConn Huskies were not eligible last year for post-season play because of NCAA and academic sanctions that happened before senior Shabazz Napier was a part of the basketball program.

Moments after UConn's six-point victory against Kentucky in the NCAA Championship Game, Napier called his team "hungry Huskies" and said, "this is what happens when you ban us".

Love it.

Notice that Napier said us. They went through last season as a team. They went through this NCAA tournament as a team.

The post-game quote was different, sincere and real. Congrats to the Hungry Huskies!
