Kim Mulkey would accept White House invitation

NEW YORK (AP) Lady Bears head coach Kim Mulkey says she would welcome an invitation to the white house if offered one after her team won the NCAA women's tournament.

The president tweeted out his congratulations to the Lady Bears on Monday after they beat Notre Dame in a thrilling championship game the night before.

"I've been every time for every president," she told the AP at the WNBA draft Wednesday night. "It's not a political issue for me. It's an honor to go to the White House. I want everyone to say they went to the White House. Not many people can say that. I hope [the] Virginia men go and I can meet [coach] Tony Bennett."We were honored when President Bush was in the office. We were honored when Barack Obama was in the office. We'd be honored if Donald Trump invited us. With politics aside, we should go to say we went to the White House."

Baylor would be the first women's college basketball champion to visit the White House under Trump, if offered.
