The White House visit is a tradition for major sports champions. But the University of North Carolina might break that tradition after toppling Gonzaga for the NCAA men's basketball title.
When asked Monday night after the win, coach Roy Williams said he needed to "think on it" before deciding if he would accept a visit to the White House, NBC Sports reports.
Williams previously accused President Trump of tweeting "more (expletive) than anybody I've ever seen."
The office of the presidency of the United States is the most fantastic place you can be. But let me think on it.
This marks Williams' third title and the sixth for the Tar Heels. The team did not accept then-President George W. Bush's post-championship invite to visit in September 2005 since many of its players had joined the NBA by that time. The team did visit then-President Barack Obama in 2009.
Trump has largely stayed out of sports in the first few months of his presidency, opting not to fill out a March Madness bracket and declining to throw the first pitch at the Washington Nationals' home opener.
In a January interview, Williams said he would remember Obama's presidency fondly.
