Napier had a huge game Saturday, going for 34 points (10-21 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 9-12 FT), five rebounds, four assists and four steals in the overtime victory over Memphis.

The 34 points are a career-high for the senior, who leads the Huskies in points, rebounds and assists this season. Napier is one of the top guards in the country and is an excellent all-around fantasy producer.
