The White House says President Obama called UConn Women’s Basketball Coach Geno Auriemma Wednesday afternoon,  to congratulate him on the team’s victory in the NCAA National Championship Game.

The statement says the president “commended the Huskies on an extraordinary season and run in the tournament”  and asked Auriemma to relay his congratulations to Breanna Stewart,  named most outstanding player at the Final Four.

He also said he looks forward to seeing the team at the White House.
