ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Connecticut's Shabazz Napier has been selected the Most Outstanding Player at the Final Four after getting 22 points and six rebounds in Monday night's NCAA championship game.
The Huskies' steely point guard outshined Kentucky's freshmen phenoms in the 60-54 win. Napier and fellow backcourt mate Ryan Boatright controlled the tempo and together outscored Wildcats twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison 36-15.
Napier as a freshman won a national title on UConn's 2011 team led by another star guard in Kemba Walker.
He ends his stellar career as the leader of the 2014 championship squad.
