Kansas Jayhawks were honored at the White House on Tuesday in a ceromony held in the Rose Garden.
President Bush gave a recap of the Jayhawks winning season before a large crowd gathered in the Rose Garden which included senators Sam Brownback and Pat Roberts, congressman Jerry Moran and Dennise Moore and former senator Bob Dole.
"I know you’ve got to be excited about winning an incredibly tough tournament,” he said. “Your fans are excited, and I’m excited to welcome you to the Rose Garden. It’s a big deal as far as I’m concerned to welcome you to the Rose Garden.”
President Bush commended the Jayhawks for playing as a team.
"More than one player, Americans will remember the way you played as a team,” he said.
