President Trump hosts PSU teams at White House

Dawn Staley Says USC Won't Be Able to Go to White House Event

South Carolina women's basketball team, reigning NCAA Tournament champions, declines invitation to White House

Last night, the coach of the SC women's team explained that her squad would also be skipping a visit. "It's what national champions do".

This will mark the first time a Sooner team has visited the White House since 2014 when the softball team was recognized for its 2013 national title. "The only invitation we're thinking about", Staley said in a statement, "is to the 2018 N.C.A.A. tournament".

Of course, not all teams were able to send their full squads because, while they may be national champions, many of these stars are still college students with classes and practices. He even declared to the West Virginia rifle team "we saved the second amendment!"

However by September the team had still not received their invitation, despite other teams receiving theirs. "I don't know what else has to happen".


Days later, when queried on the topic again, Staley said, "Here's my take, and I'm not going to discuss the White House anymore". It's customary for the president to host title-winning NCAA teams. The North Carolina men's basketball team - whose coach, Roy Williams, has been publicly critical of Trump - begged off, citing a scheduling conflict. "The only invitation I would like is an invitation to get into the NCAA tournament in March".

Trump sparred with professional athletes earlier this year when National Basketball Association star Stephen Curry said his championship-winning Golden State Warriors didn't wish to meet with Trump.

Staley's stance changed over the coming months when Trump invited championship teams from other sports to the White House but did not bestow that same honor on SC.
