Virginia basketball team declines White House invitation

UVA’s coach, Tony Bennett, tweeted that as a result of scheduling issues, the team would not be able to make the traditional visit to the White House.

“We have received inquiries about a visit to the White House. With several players either pursuing pro opportunities or moving on from UVA, it would be difficult, if not impossible to get everyone back together. We would have to respectfully decline an invitation,” Bennett said in a statement on Twitter.
