The fourth-ranked Gamecocks opened their championship defense last week and have won their first three games, including a 66-36 win over Clemson on Thursday ahead of Sunday's home game against Wofford. Their coach, Dawn Staley, pointed out in September that her team, which won its title in April, had yet to be invited. "I don't know what else has to happen". "The only invitation we're thinking about", Staley said in a statement, "is to the 2018 N.C.A.A. tournament". "I got bigger fish to fry than worry about an invitation".

The Golden State Warriors had an invite, but it was later rescinded by the White House when President Donald Trump tweeted that star guard Stephen Curry was "hesitating" in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. "It's what national champions do". She represented the U.S. Olympic team when George W. Bush was president in 2004.

This is the University of Washington's women's rowing team, not the women's rugby team.
