WASHINGTON DC (WFSB) - The University of Connecticut men’s basketball team heads to Washington DC on Friday.

The White House invited the 2023 NCAA Tournament national champions to the nation’s capital on May 26, a spokesperson confirmed to Channel 3.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will greet the Huskies.

The team will be joined by the Louisiana State University Tigers women’s basketball team, champions of the NCAA women’s tournament.

Two ceremonies will be held to honor both champions.

The UConn men’s basketball team won its 5th national championship last month. It defeated San Diego State 76-59.

The win put the team as tied for fourth with Duke and Indiana in terms of schools with the most national titles.
