"Sometimes we look like we're coming over the hump and then we face a good team and we all let up," said Napier, a co-captain. "One thing I hate to say is, I've got to question a lot of these guys' hearts."
Napier was particularly upset with the way the Big East game ended, as a defenseless UConn allowed easy baskets. The Huskies (16-10, 6-8) went from trailing by eight to losing by 15 in the final four minutes.
"It just looked out there like we gave up at the end," Napier said. "It's tough to say it because we're a great team. For those words to come out of mouth is just horrendous. … When push comes to shove, it's who's out there and who's going to give it back. ... We get punched and some guys throw pillows back. You're not supposed to throw pillows back. You're supposed to go get a three-pointer and lock up on defense and do the necessary things to get a win and right now we're not doing that."
