WACO, TX — In the aftermath of Baylor University’s third NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball championship, the Baylor Lady Bears accepted an invitation to visit the White House Monday, which will include a visit from President Donald J. Trump.

On Monday, the Lady Bears were served fast food favorites at the White House. The White House also served fast food to the Clemson football team and the North Dakota State Bison football team during their visit.

April 7, Baylor defeated Notre Dame 82-81 for the program’s third national title, which put the program in elite company with UConn and Tennessee as the only institutions to have three national championships in women’s basketball.

Head Coach Kim Mulkey and the Lady Bears also visited the White House and met with President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama in 2005 and 2012 following their first two titles, respectively.
