    It’s been an amazing journey for the UConn Huskies and the excitement continues.

    The team is on its way home for a victory rally today and Shabazz Napier will be on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week, according to Tweets from Sports Illustrated and SI College Hoops.

    Michael Rosenberg wrote the cover story, following UConn “from the brink of the abyss to a fourth national title,” according to an article Sports Illustrated posted online about the issue.

    “With his trademark pizzazz Shabazz Napier lit up Kentucky for 22 points and walked off with the Most Outstanding Player award,” the cover says.

    Congratulations to the entire UConn Huskies team!
