DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Duke's men's basketball team is headed back to the White House next week to celebrate its latest national title.

School officials announced Friday that President Barack Obama will honor the Blue Devils on Tuesday for their NCAA tournament championship.

Duke won its fifth NCAA tournament title in April by beating Wisconsin 68–63 in the championship game in Indianapolis.

It marks Duke's second White House invitation of the Obama administration. The Blue Devils made a similar trip in 2010.
