UConn Men, Women To Be Honored at White House on Monday

by Categorized: Uncategorized

UConn’s dual national champions, the men’s and women’s basketball teams, will have their day at the White House next Monday.

President Obama will welcome the Huskies, assuming the usual visit and tour will ensue, with ceremonies at 4:05 p.m.

We imagine there will be no “bunny ears” this time, but one never knows.

“This visit will continue a tradition begun by President Obama of honoring sports teams for their efforts to give back to their communities,” read the White House release. (The date has been finalized, but, of course, anything concerning a president’s schedule is tentative.)
