South Carolina women's basketball team, reigning NCAA Tournament champions, declines invitation to White House

SC women's basketball coach Dawn Staley says her team will not be able to go to an event at the White House Friday honoring college sports champions.

Do you really want to mess with an athlete, Mr. President? At another point, joined by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Trump bowed his head in prayer along with members of the Oklahoma softball team. There were two teams from the University of Maryland and four from the University of Oklahoma.

The North Carolina men's basketball team said earlier this year that they wouldn't be able to make it because the team couldn't agree on a date. He then greeted each of the teams and took photos with them.

Appearing as the team ended practice for the day, Staley bluntly said why she and the team wasn't at the White House appearing alongside other NCAA Championship teams. "We'll go to the White House", she said at the time.

While many people have no symptoms, it can cause serious pneumonia and prove unsafe to those with lung or immune system problems. One individual, who did not visit the park, died from the disease although they were already suffering from other health issues.

"We haven't gotten an invitation yet and that in itself speaks volumes", Staley told reporters in September.

Eventually the South Carolina Gamecocks received their invitation to the West Wing, however that didn't change the fact that they were overlooked.

On Friday, President Donald Trump welcomed over 18 National Collegiate Athletic Association teams to the White House.

Clemson's football team had already made its visit, so Friday was for everyone else. "I'm here concentrating on my team and getting better. I was the best baseball player in NY when I was young", has waded into controversies with a number of professional stars.
