In 2011, point guard Kemba Walker put UConn on his back and led them to a National Championship. This year, his former teammate Shabazz Napier is doing his best Kemba-impersonation. During this afternoon’s UConn win over Michigan State which sends the Huskies to the Final Four, Walker sent out a tweet that looks pretty accurate right now.
Best PG in the country. Shabazz Napier

The internet is abuzz with comparisons between Walker and Napier, especially now that each has carried his team through the tournament to the Final Four. Check out the two players’ tournament numbers, they’re incredibly impressive.
