The University of Kentucky men’s basketball team has been invited to visit the White House this Friday, according to a tweet from head coach John Calipari.

The Wildcats defeated the Kansas Jayhawks 67-59 in the National Championship game in early April to earn their eighth overall NCAA title, and their first since 1998. The club finished with a 38-2 overall record, helping Calipari improve his record with Kentucky to 102-14. Following the team’s victory, the entire starting lineup announced that they will be leaving school to enter the NBA draft.
