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.
