ARLINGTON, Texas -- Coaches and players left them. Caris LeVert Jersey . Others told them to go away. The guys who stuck around at UConn ended up with the last laugh and a pretty good prize to go with it: The national title. Shabazz Napier turned in another all-court masterpiece Monday night to lift the Huskies to a 60-54 win over Kentuckys freshmen and bring home a championship hardly anyone saw coming. "Youre looking at the hungry Huskies," Napier told the crowd and TV audience as confetti rained down. "Ladies and gentlemen, this is what happens when you banned us." The senior guard had 22 points, six rebounds and three assists, and his partner in defensive lock-down, Ryan Boatright, finished with 14 points. The victory comes only a short year after the Huskies were barred from March Madness because of grades problems. That stoked a fire no one could put out in 2014. Napier kneeled down and put his forehead to the court for a long while after the buzzer sounded. He was wiping back tears when he cut down the net. "I see my guys enjoying it," Napier said. "Thats the most special feeling ever." UConn (32-Cool never trailed in the final. The Huskies led by as many as 15 in the first half and watched the Wildcats (29-11) trim the deficit to one with 8:13 left. But Aaron Harrison, who pulled out wins with clutch 3-pointers in Kentuckys last three games, missed a 3 from the left corner that wouldve given the Cats the lead. Kentucky never got that close again. One key difference in a six-point loss: Kentuckys 11 missed free throws -- a flashback of sorts for coach John Calipari, whose Memphis team blew a late lead against Kansas after missing multiple free throws in the 2008 final. The Wildcats went 13 for 24. UConn went 10 for 10, including Lasan Kromahs two to seal the game with 25.1 seconds left. "We had our chances to win," Calipari said. "Were missing shots, were missing free throws. We just didnt have enough." Calipari said he decided not to foul at the end "because theyre not missing." In all, Caliparis One and Doners got outdone by a more fundamentally sound, more-seasoned group that came into this tournament a seventh-seeded afterthought but walked away with the programs fourth national title since 1999. They were the highest seed to win it all since Rollie Massiminos eighth-seeded Villanova squad in 1985. Napier and Boatright now go down with Kemba Walker, Emeka Okafor, Rip Hamilton, Ray Allen and all those other UConn greats. This adds to the schools titles in 1999, 2004 and 2011. "When they say Ray, Rip, Ben, Emeka, Kemba -- theyll soon say Shabazz," said their former coach, Jim Calhoun, who was in the crowd along with former Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and a father-and-son team whose dance to the "Happy" song got huge applause when played on the big screen at AT&T Stadium. The crowd was cheering for UConn at the end. A short year ago, the Huskies were preparing for their first season in the new American Athletic Conference after being booted from the Big East and not welcomed by any of the so-called power conferences. Calhoun, who built the program, left because of health problems. And most damaging -- the NCAA ban triggered an exodus of five key players to the NBA or other schools. Napier stuck around. So did Boatright. And Calhouns replacement, Kevin Ollie, figured out how to make their grit, court sense and loyalty pay off. "Its not about going to the next level, its not about going to the pros, but playing for your university, playing for your teammates," Niels Giffey said. "And Im so proud of all the guys on this team that stuck with this team." They were one step ahead of Kentucky all night, holding off furious rally after furious rally. Kentuckys biggest push started when James Young (20 points, seven rebounds) posterized Amida Brimah with a monster dunk to start a three-point play and trigger an 8-0 run. In the middle of that, Boatright, who shut down Harrisons twin brother, Andrew, most of the night, twisted his left ankle while receiving an innocuous-looking pass from Napier. He called a timeout. Got it worked on and came back out. "Ive got a lot of heart and I wasnt coming out," Boatright said. "We put in too much work all year for me to give up on an ankle sprain." Napier and Giffey made 3s on UConns two possessions after the timeout, and that one-point lead was back up to five -- fairly comfortable by this tight, taut, buzzer-beating tournaments standards. The big question in Kentucky is what will happen to all those freshmen. Julius Randle (10 points, six rebounds) is a lottery pick if he leaves for the NBA. Young and the Harrison brothers could be first-rounders. The big question is whether theyll want to leave on this note. "I think all these kids are coming back, so I think we should be good," Calipari deadpanned, getting big laughs. He called his group the most coachable bunch hes ever had. They were pre-season No. 1, a huge disappointment through much of this season. They were seeded an uninspiring eighth for the tournament and came on strong in time for a run to the final. But they got outdone by a team on a different sort of mission -- a team led by Napier, who stuck with the program even though he knew the 2012-13 season was for nothing but fun. But what fun 2013-14 turned out to be. Napier was named the Final Fours Most Outstanding Player and he earned it on both ends of the court, keeping a hand in Aaron Harrisons face most of the night and holding him to a 3-for-7, seven-point, no-damage night. He could also shoot it a bit -- including a 3-pointer in the first half when UConn was having trouble dissecting the Kentucky zone. The shot came from about 30 feet, right in front of the edge of the Final Four logo at Center Court, or, as Dick Vitale put it: "He shot that one from Fort Worth." They felt it back in Storrs, where they could be celebrating another title shortly. The UConn women play for the national title Tuesday. If they win, it will be the first sweep of the titles since 2004. The last school to do it: UConn, of course. Jarrett Allen Jersey . "Uuufff," was all shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria could come up with after Stantons latest mammoth shot. Sean Kilpatrick Jersey . The 7-foot-1 Hawes, who is in the final year of his contract, is averaging 13 points and 8.5 rebounds, both career highs, and shoots 40 per cent from 3-point range. The 25-year-old Hawes is in his seventh NBA season. http://www.nbanetsauthority.com/allen-crabbe-nets-jersey-c-24/ . Joining him in this years class were Switzerlands Patrick Huerlimann and Norways Eigil Ramsfjell. The announcement was made at the world mens curling championship at Capital Indoor Stadium in China.(SportsNetwork.com) - Its an early-season battle of undefeated teams Tuesday night when the Houston Rockets head to AmericanAirlines Arena to battle the Miami Heat. The Rockets reached 4-0 on Monday night with a 104-93 road victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. Houston is undefeated, but the quality of opponents has lacked a bit. The combined records of the four teams the Rockets toppled thus far is 2-13. However, the Rockets have handled whats been in front of them. Each victory was by double-digits and Houston has averaged 105 ppg, while allowing only 91.5 ppg. We struggled tonight, so were going to have to do a lot better tomorrow, head coach Kevin McHale said after the Sixers victory. 4-0 is better than 0-4, so Ill take that. We have stuff to work on. James Harden led the way on Monday with 35 points, nine rebounds and five assists. He went 17-for-18 from the free-throw line. Trevor Ariza went 6-for-9 from 3-point range en route to 24 points. He added seven assists and Dwight Howard registered a double-double with 11 points and 14 rebounds. Isaiah Canaan was the only other Houston player in double figures with 13. Things get tougher for Houston, not just in facing the four-time defending Eastern Conference champions. The Rockets return home Thursday and play the San Antonio Spurs, then host the Golden State Warriors on Saturday. The Heat also defeated the 76ers this seasson and have a pair of home victories over the Washington Wizards and Toronto Raptors, a pair of playoff teams last season in the Eastern Conference. Jeremy Lin Jersey. Were three games into this so it could quickly go the other way if guys start to feel comfortable and try to start to do it on their own, head coach Erik Spoelstra said, and thats not the makeup of this group. Thats not at all a referendum on our personnel, its the power of working together that will make us more successful. The Heat have the first Eastern Conference Player of the Week, Chris Bosh. He is averaging 25.7 ppg and 11.3 rebounds and has been spectacular early in the campaign. Against the Raptors on Sunday, Dwyane Wade scored 19 points with 11 rebounds and seven assists, and the Heat continued their dominance over the Toronto Raptors with a 107-102 win. Bosh tallied 21 points with 11 rebounds and four assists for the Heat, who have opened the season with three straight wins for just the fifth time in franchise history. It was a good win, particularly having to go through the emotions of playing a very good team, Spoelstra said. Luol Deng and Shawne Williams netted 18 and 16 points, respectively, in the victory. The Rockets won at home in March of last season versus Miami and that snapped a seven-game series losing streak. The Heat have won five in a row as the host against the Rockets.
