The post-championship celebration continued today for the Louisville men’s basketball team as the players, coaches and managers all attended the White House where they were honored by President Obama. Rick Pitino presented the POTUS with a specially designed National Championship red and black Louisville Slugger bat as well as customized Obama Cardinal jersey. During the actual presentation, Obama commended Tim Henderson’s huge three-pointers against Wichita State, Luke Hancock’s MOP award, Kevin Ware’s perseverance and Pitino’s guidance throughout the season-ending 16-game winning streak. Tons of photos from the media and players have begun to surface so here’s a quick look at some of the better ones we’ve seen.
