UConn top scorer Shabazz Napier out with sore foot vs Cincinnati

Connecticut was missing top scorer Shabazz Napier for its game against Cincinnati on Saturday.

Napier, who averages 17.1 points per game, aggravated his right foot during a double-overtime loss to No. 7 Georgetown on Wednesday night. The foot has been a problem throughout his career. He had a screw inserted in the foot last September to repair a stress fracture.

A school spokesman said the foot has been bothering him the last few weeks.

It's the first time Napier has missed a game after playing in 102 for UConn.
