UConn's Shabazz Naper: "We Do Have Hungry Nights" [VIDEO]

The University of Connecticut is getting all sorts of press now that they are squaring off against Kentucky for the NCAA title but their point guard is getting some unique attention after telling reports that he goes to bed hungry some nights because his scholarship doesn’t cover all of his expenses.
