UConn heads to White House today

Just call it UConn week at the White House.

This afternoon the UConn men's and women's national championship basketball teams will be honored in a ceremony with President Barack Obama a little after 4 p.m. and on Thursday former UConn star Maya Moore will join the rest of the WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx in a celebration ceremony at the White House.

My colleague David Borges, who is the beat writer of the UConn men's team, will be at today's ceremony.

It could be the final time the UConn women's team gets together as a group (although I have been told that Brianna Banks, who has announced her intentions to transfer, will not be at the ceremony).

"We have been through so much through all of these years and I think we are real excited to be all together again," All-American guard Bria Hartley said.

At last year's event, Stefanie Dolson and Kiah Stokes caused quite the commotion when they held up two fingers each behind the head of President Obama for a much-discussed "bunny ears" photo during a group shot. When Dolson and Hartley were back in Connecticut last week when the Washington Mystics played at Mohegan Sun Arena, Dolson claimed there is nothing special planned on this year's visit.

"I am going to go with the flow," Dolson said.. "I am not forcing anything."
