HOUSE PARTY: In Hartford, Dom Amore notes the Univ. of Connecticut men’s and women’s national champion basketball teams visited the White House yesterday, and in his East Room remarks, Obama “sprinkled in humor to honor the Huskies' achievements.” Obama: "It is just a remarkable thing what these two programs have accomplished. The women were a perfect 40-0 and won their games by an average of 34 points. There was not a lot of suspense. Now, I did not pick the men's team to win. But neither did anybody else, unless they went to UConn. Tell the truth” (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/10).
