On the heels of Final Four MVP Shabazz Napier claiming that often times he went to bed starving as a player for UCONN, the NCAA legislative council approved the expansion of meal allowances for college athletes on Tuesday.

Napier told the Connecticut Mirror that although they receive scholarships, they don’t exactly cover everything.

“We as student athletes get utilized for what we do so well. We are definitely best to get a scholarship to our universities, but at the end of the day, that doesn’t cover everything. We do have hungry nights that we don’t have enough money to get food and sometimes money is needed,” Napier told the Mirror. “I think, you know, Northwestern has an idea, and we’ll see where it goes.”
