South Carolina women's basketball finally invited to White House, but it's too late

Donald Trump

"The only invitation we are thinking about is to the 2018 NCAA tournament".

The White House is holding Collegiate National Champions Day on Friday.

"We did hear from the White House about attending tomorrow's event", Gamecocks head coach Dawn Staley said in a statement, "but we will not be able to attend".

The Gamecocks now join a growing list of recent sports teams to not make the customary White House stop after winning championships.

The University of SC women's basketball team is declining an invitation from President Trump to celebrate their 2017 NCAA championship win at the White House. The former three-time Olympic gold medalist and flag bearer at the 2004 Games told the Associated Press, "It's what national champions do".

The night her squad won the school's first national championship, the Hall of Famer said the team would go to the White House because "it's what it stands for".

Trump hosted the 2016 NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers at the White House in June.

"I can't speak on what other people think", Staley said. The University of North Carolina's 2017 national championship men's basketball team said earlier this year it could not agree on a date for a visit.

Staley told ESPN on Thursday that the team did finally receive an invitation to Friday's event, but now they have bigger fish to fry.

SC has a game on Sunday, with a practice scheduled for Friday.

The women's basketball champions from SC did not appear, either.
