President Obama Shoots Some Hoops With The Lady Huskies
Total Pro Sports – Recently the 2009 UConn Lady Huskies National Championship basketball team traveled to the White House for a ceremonial visit with President Barack Obama.
During the visit, the Lady Huskies were treated to a special Presidential shoot around at the White House outdoor half-court. Obama a former high school basketball player, absolutely dominated a few of the Huskies in a short game of P-I-G.
“He was pretty good from 17 feet,” said coach Geno Auriemma. “His shot’s a little unorthodox, but it goes in … He’s got a little bit of that swagger.” [NHR]
Like every other ceremonial visit to the White House the Lady Huskies gave Obama a basketball signed by the players and a Uconn jersey with #1 and his name on the back.
“Number One – that’s what I’m talking about,” Obama joked. “I will wear it when I’m playing.
Truly a special day that the 2009 Lady Huskies will always remember. Video after the jump.
