NCAA champion coach Dawn Staley says she’d accept White House invite

NCAA women’s basketball champion head coach Dawn Staley would accept an invitation to the White House if it came up.

“I’ve got options now. Yeah, I’m going to the White House,” Staley told The Associated Press after the South Carolina Gamecoks’ win on Sunday night that provided Staley with her first title. “It’s what it stands for. It’s what national champions do. We’ll go to the White House.”

It would not be the first visit to the White House for Staley, who went with the U.S. Olympic team in 2004 when George W. Bush was in the White House.

Staley’s win also made her only the second African-American woman coach to do so.

South Carolina star A’ja Wilson also said that she would love to be invited. “I’ve never really been to the White House. It should be exciting to go with this group of girls,” Wilson said. “We’re going to have fun, so I’m excited. Honestly, I’m just going to go and enjoy the moment, just take it all in. This is probably a once-in-a-lifetime thing, so why not enjoy it?”
