WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama has invited the University of Connecticut women’s basketball team to the White House next week to honor them for winning their eighth NCAA championship.

The team will be at the White House on Wednesday.

The Huskies defeated Louisville 93-60 in the April NCAA tournament final to claim the championship.

Obama will also honor the team for their public service, a tradition that he has incorporated into his salutes to sports teams.
