UConn star Shabazz Napier received quite an honor less than 24 hours after leading the Huskies to the national title.

And it almost brought him to tears.

The senior guard was inducted into the Huskies of Honor during the team’s celebration on Tuesday and his jersey will hang forever inside Gampel Pavilion.

Napier spoke to the crowd after receiving the honor and became very emotional before saying, "Man, wow, this is crazy. Thank you."
