All eyes have been on LSU after their big win against Iowa.

Following Sunday's NCAA Tournament, First Lady Jill Biden expressed the desire to invite both teams in the finals to the White House despite what has happened historically.

"I know we’ll have the champions come to the White House, we always do," Biden, who was at American Airlines Center in Dallas to witness LSU's win, said in Denver on Monday via ESPN. "So, we hope LSU will come. But, you know, I’m going to tell Joe I think Iowa should come, too, because they played such a good game."

Historically, only the winning team gets invited to the White House. Iowa's Caitlin Clark even chimed in and said only LSU should get the invite. LSU's star player Angel Reese declined the invite altogether on social media.

She even took to Instagram and commented on a post made by The ShadeRoom (@theshaderoom) saying, "WE NOT COMING. period."

Looks like LSU has a different take according to CNN saying the school’s athletics department would “certainly accept an invitation.”

As far as if Angel or the rest of the team would actually show up, only time will tell.
