Connecticut star Shabazz Napier now has two national championships to his name, but it sounds like the senior isn't ready to forgive the NCAA for banning his team from the tournament during the 2012-13 season.
After the Huskies pulled out a 60-54 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats on Monday night, Napier didn't hold back when talking about his career at the university. He won a title as a freshman and as a senior, but it's what happened during his junior season that was fresh in his mind after the game.
The NCAA banned Connecticut from the 2013 NCAA tournament due to academic issues. Napier had one simple message for the NCAA:
Shabazz: "This is what happens when you ban us."— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) April 8, 2014
His comments led to this:
Ha, NCAA banned Shabazz Napier’s mention of being banned in their post-game handout of his comments. #censored— Ryan Wolstat (@WolstatSun) April 8, 2014
Napier's days of putting on a Connecticut jersey are over, so it wasn't a bad time to vent. His comments come after it was revealed he goes to bed "starving" because he can't afford food.
