The 2015-16 UConn Huskies were as dominant of a team as we’ve seen in a long time, and on Tuesday, Geno Auriemma’s squad had its day in the White House.
And what a day it was. Though it wasn’t the first time many of these Huskies attended the White House, the team soaked in the experience nonetheless. Here are some of the best moments and quotes of the day:

We'll see if UConn will visit the White House as frequently once a new president takes office.
