College Basketball Champs Dodge White House Visit

CBS Sports reports:

The University of Virginia men’s basketball team will not visit the White House after winning the national championship, head coach Tony Bennett has announced. Bennett cited scheduling difficulties as a reason to decline the invitation.

“With several players either pursuing pro opportunities or moving on from UVA, it would be difficult, if not impossible to get everyone back together. We would have to respectfully decline an invitation.” Bennett wrote.

Sure, Coach. We’re totally buying that reason. Now stand by for Glorious Leader to claim you were never invited to begin with.
