Huskies Hoping 3-Day Break Will Get Shabazz Napier Healthy For Rutgers

by Categorized: Shabazz Napier, UConn men's basketball

UConn offered an update on Shabazz Napier and his shoulder injury this morning.

Napier, who has been fighting a contusion of his left shoulder since Jan. 14, was held out of practice on Sunday to rest it. He played 34 minutes at Pitt last Saturday, hitting 2 of 7 shots from the floor, scoring eight points with two assists and two turnovers.

The Huskies are off Monday and Tuesday, so the hope is, with three consecutive days off, Napier’s shoulder will be better healed to resume practice on Wednesday. UConn plays Rutgers at the XL Center on Sunday at 2 p.m.


The school is offering single game tickets for the Syracuse game at XL on Feb. 13, noting “limited quantities” are available. Click here for more info on this and other upcoming events.

    Click on the link above for tickets to the Syracuse game actually you are connected to the ticket bandits at UConn. Yes it is their website for tickets but they have increased the price from the already too high normal price of $33.00 to $50.00 (not including add on fees)for this game. Gone are the days of college sports providing valued entertainment at UConn unlike other schools. UConn has become WeCon when it comes to sports tickets. When the stands sit empty they ask why: the answer is simple you abused the loyal fans in the name of greed.

    A loyal fan you are not! UConn does nothing different than any other top program. The problem is with our fans. They don’t see buying a tix to a game as supporting the team and the athletic department. Why don’t you educate yourself and check out the tix prices to Louisville or Kentucky games. They have no problem selling out games at extremly high ticket prices.
