Connecticut’s Shabazz Napier Wins Second NCAA Title, Makes NBA Draft Case

Source: Eric Pincus / Los Angeles Times

The NCAA tournament concluded Monday night with the Connecticut Huskies winning the national title, defeating the Kentucky Wildcats, 60-53.

Senior Shabazz Napier led all scorers with 22 points in 39 minutes. With a strong tournament, Napier should have improved his NBA draft stock after picking up his second NCAA title in four years.

Originally, Napier was projected as a second-round pick, but LeBron James suggested otherwise Monday.

No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier.
