The champions were crowned on Tuesday afternoon

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Champion-Villanova White House Visit Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday, the Villanova Wildcats were invited to the White House to meet with President Obama, as is tradition for champions of sport in this country.

For starters, you can watch the President's remarks right here.

NOTE: Obama called Jay Wright "the George Clooney of coaches", which is the highest honor in all of the land.

Regardless of your feelings of the current President, we're at an interesting juncture with these visits to the White House. None of the three remaining candidates seem to be as big of a sports fan as the previous three Presidents, so these visits may very well go by the wayside.

You can also watch a behind-the-scenes look at the day via Villanova's official Twitter account.

Finally, Jay Wright has a ton of great pictures on his Twitter from the day. You can see those right HERE.
