Obama likes his chances in 'dance-off' with UConn player

President Barack Obama’s ‘dance-off’ with UConn basketball star Stefanie Dolson is looking a bit easier, especially after she stumbled on stage.

The team was on hand Monday to celebrate its NCAA title, and oddly, it was Dolson, who challenged Obama to a dance-off if UConn won a second consecutive title, who couldn’t stay on her feet.

Obama did a little trash talking during the event, and before Dolson took the quick exit off the stage.

“Don’t think that you’re going to beat me on that,” he said. “I also appreciate that you told the world about it after the title game. I have daughters in junior high and high school, and for their sake, I will not be dancing too much while the cameras are around.”
