WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama and the first family plan to watch Oregon State University play basketball Sunday against the University of Maryland.
It’s a yearly rite for the Obamas to watch the Oregon State Beavers play a Washington-area team. Michelle Obama’s brother Craig Robinson, coaches the men’s team.
Obama is a consummate basketball fan and pick-up game player. He and the first lady and their daughters have regularly attended games when Oregon State visits, usually around Thanksgiving.
The Beavers face the Terrapins at 6 p.m. EST.
