The Minnesota Lynx visited President Obama at the White House in celebration of their WNBA Championship Tuesday afternoon.
"These women have brought glory back to the Twin Cities. I know there are a lot of fans at home that are happy to have a professional title back in Minnesota," said President Obama. "This team has come a long way to get here. Just two years ago, the Lynx had the worst record in the WNBA."
For the majority of the team, this is the first trip to the White House, but for Maya Moore, she has been there a couple of times before.
"This is about the fourth time she has shown up at the White House," said Obama. "She just somehow likes to attract hardware. I have had the pleasure of playing with Maya, and she lit everybody up."
The Lynx wrapped up their regular season home schedule on Monday night with a win over the Indiana Fever. The win pushed their home record to 16-1. The team will play their last three games on the road before beginning the playoff run next week at Target Center.
