Shabazz Napier scored 27 points, including 11 over the final 7 minutes, to lead No. 18 Connecticut to a 59-58 victory over Indiana on Friday night in the championship game of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Wounded Warrior Project.

Napier's driving basket with 1:34 left to play turned out to be the final points of the game.

Indiana turned the ball over twice and Yogi Ferrell missed a jumper in that span. Napier missed a 3-pointer and was called for an offensive foul in the hectic finish that had the crowd at Madison Square Garden standing for the final 90 seconds.

Indiana had the last scoring chance. Ferrell missed a jumper with 10 seconds to go and the rebounded rolled out of bounds off a Connecticut player. With .7 seconds left, Jeremy Hollowell inbounded the ball to Noah Vonleh, but his jumper was late.
