The president will honor the national champions at the White House next Monday.
Obama - who played a pickup game with the team last spring - picked the Tar Heels to win the title before the tournament. North Carolina was the only one of his Final Four picks to make it to Detroit, but the Tar Heels' 89-72 win against Michigan State on April 6 allowed him to finish in the top 20 percent of the 5 million-plus people who entered ESPN.com's pool.
It was the fifth NCAA championship for the Tar Heels (34-4) and the second in five seasons.
