"The only invitation we are thinking about is to the 2018 NCAA Tournament".

Four University of Oklahoma teams that won NCAA championships previous year were among a group of national championship teams that visited President Trump and the White House today.

According to ESPN, the team, which won its first NCAA championship in April, was recently invited to attend a reception at the White House along with other college teams who won titles this year. "I don't know what else has to happen".

Staley said the team received the invitation about two weeks ago, but said she and her NCAA champions are busy trying to get better. "It's what national champions do".

According to the BBC , organisers awarded the race to Irwin, although there were no anthems or champagne on the podium. Daniel Hegarty lost his life during a crash at the Macau Grand Prix , leaving many fans of the sport shattered.

Months passed and the White House invitation never came.

The Golden State Warriors had an invite, but it was later rescinded by the White House when President Donald Trump tweeted that star guard Stephen Curry was "hesitating" in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington.

USC released a statement from Dawn Staley on the matter Thursday night following the Gamecocks 66-36 win over Clemson. "It's what national champions do".
