The celebration for the University of Louisville basketball team continues on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., as the Cardinals meet the President.
The entire U of L team – except Russ Smith who is playing on an All-Star team in Estonia – will meet President Obama at the White House.
The President always welcomes the NCAA champions and the Cardinals will take advantage of the meeting to celebrate the title today. U of L will then tour the Capitol building as guests of Senator Mitch McConnell.
Members of the U of L team and staff will bring President Obama a couple of gifts and will also be wearing their new championship rings.
"I want to ask him why he didn't pick us," senior Luke Hancock said with a laugh last week when asked if he had a message for the President. Obama picked Indiana to win the NCAA Championship last season.
