White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says Obama called Williams from Air Force One on Tuesday. Gibbs also says Obama thanked Williams for ``vindicating him in front of the entire country.'' Obama picked UNC to win the championship in his much-watched basketball bracket.
UNC on Monday defeated Michigan State, 89-72, to win the school's fifth NCAA basketball championship.
Gibbs says Obama looks forward to welcoming the entire UNC team to the White House soon.
