The Huskies of Honor is a tremendous honor for any UConn basketball player. Typically a player’s number isn’t hung from the walls of Gampel Pavilion until several seasons after their career at UConn is over.
That changed when Kemba Walker led the Huskies to 11 straight wins in March, guiding UConn to the program’s third National Title in 2011. A day later, Walker’s No. 15 was presented alongside some of Connecticut’s legendary players and coaches.
On Tuesday, one day after Shabazz Napier cut down the nets to his second title in his four years, his N0. 13 was revealed on the Huskies of Honor, three spots away from Walker’s jersey.
To make the occasion even more special, it was Napier’s mother, Carmen Velasquez who unveiled his number.
