Fox News Host Calls UConn Basketball Team ‘NAACP National Champs’ (VIDEO)

A Fox News host accidentally referred to the UConn Huskies as “NAACP national champs” after the school clinched the 2014 NCAA men’s basketball title.

“Fox & Friends First” host Heather Childers made the mistake early Tuesday morning, using the acronym for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People instead of the National Collegiate Athletics Association.

She correctly referred to the team as “NCAA champions” the second time around.
