KENTUCKY (FOX19) -

University of Kentucky coach John Calipari and the national champion Wildcats will visit the White House on Friday.

President Barack Obama will honor the coach and players on their school's eighth national title.

Calipari says the first thing the players said in the moments after beating Kansas 67-59 last month was that they were headed to the White House.

Calipari says he's excited his players will get a chance to meet Mr. Obama.
