ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)
U.S. President Barack Obama honored the men's and women's UConn Huskies basketball teams at the White House on Monday (June 9).
He congratulated them on their 2014 NCAA championship seasons.
"Only once before, in 2004, has one school won both the men's and women's Division I titles, and that was who?" asked Obama.
"UConn!" said the audience.
"This is the women's ninth national title, more than any other women's basketball team in history. For the men, it is their fourth title in the last sixteen years, which is twice as many as anybody else during that same span of time," Obama added.
During the photo-op with the team jerseys, center Stefanie Dolson pulled funny faces to laughs from the crowd -- and Obama.
