  • Huskies win 4th title as No. 7...

    The Associated Press

    ARLINGTON, Texas — No conference wanted them. Several teammates and their coach left them. The NCAA kept them out for a year.

    UConn won it all anyway.

    Shabazz Napier turned in another all-court masterpiece Monday night to lift the Huskies to a 60-54 win over Kentucky’s freshmen and a national title hardly anyone saw coming.

    Napier had 22 points, six rebounds and three assists, and his partner in defensive lock-down, Ryan Boatright, finished with 14 points.
