ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Barack Obama welcomed the University of Connecticut women's basketball team to the White House on Tuesday (September 15) for their 2015 NCAA championship title. The Huskies beat Notre Dame 63-53 back in April and solidified their 10th title. "Congratulations to all the Huskies. I don't want to jinx it. No team has ever won four in a row. I'm just saying. You get here one more time and we might have to name the White House basketball court after you, or at least you can guide the tour," joked Obama, who was later presented with a personalized jersey and basketball.
