With the Final Four right around the corner, the UConn Huskies face the Florida Gators. But there is a player that has been crucial for the Huskies in clutch situations and this is point guard of Shabazz Napier.  He has been the clutch player every team dreams of having. He can shoot, hit big shots and most importantly he can carry a team on his shoulders.

He has played with poise and confidence and he learned this from his mentor three years ago. Kemba Walker has been the player Napier has looked up to and has created his own path by leading UConn back to the Final Four.
