Fox Host Calls UConn the “NAACP” National Champions

Fox host calls UConn basketball team ‘NAACP champs’ instead of ‘NCAA’

Fox News host refers to UConn as the "NAACP" national champs.

Fox News host Heather Childers announced the University of Connecticut’s national championship on Tuesday by saying that the team was “NAACP champs.” “The UConn Huskies are the 2014 NAACP national champs,” Childers remarked during the second hour of the Fox & Friends First morning show.

On her next attempt, she correctly stated that the team had won the national title for the NCAA — or National Collegiate Athletic Association.
