Obama congratulates UConn on NCAA dominance

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama has congratulated the University of Connecticut's men's and women's basketball teams on winning last week's NCAA tournaments.

The White House says Obama commended men's head coach Kevin Ollie and his team on their decisive championship victory and noted how he enjoyed watching them throughout the tournament. He told women's head coach Geno Auriemma (aw-ree-EH'-muh) how impressive it was to see the team continue to dominate women's collegiate basketball.

The women's team, undefeated this season, won a record ninth championship. The men's team triumphed after an unexpected run under a neophyte coach.
