The day is here, your 2016 National Champion Villanova Wildcats Men's Basketball team will be concluding their NCAA Tournament #VictoryTour with a trip to the White House where President Obama will honor the team on Tuesday.

'Nova defeated the North Carolina Tar Heels eight weeks ago to claim the University's second national championship. Since then the seniors rang the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange in mid-April, a week after their Championship Parade through Philadelphia. The pro Philadelphia sports also honored the Wildcats; the Phillies let Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu throw out the first pitch and they were on the pitch with the Union, the Flyers, and honored by the Sixers.
