UConn New NCAA Champs Has Mucho Fans In Puerto Rico

Senior Shabazz Napier, who has Puerto Rican ancestry was named Outstanding Player of the Final 4.

Bronx, NY – I’m personally a person that roots for teams that are close to my Bronx, New York address. Therefore, I was rooting  for UConn over Kentucky.

I’m also a proud Latino from Puerto Rico and star UConn player, Napier has Boricua blood who said he would be proud to play for Puerto Rico. So there was no question that the Pabón home tonight was rooting for UConn.

It was a tight game, but star senior, Shabazz Napier was the reason many in Puerto Rico and Boricuas throughout the country were rooting for UConn. Congrats to Uconn Huskies the new College Champions. Congrats to Napier for being named the “Outstanding Player Of The Final Four.”
