Oregon State vs Towson

Oregon St. 66, Towson 46

  •  

TOWSON, Md. (AP) - President Barack Obama was just a fan at this basketball game.

Obama, who plays in pick-up games often, including Saturday morning, brought his family to Towson University near Baltimore for an afternoon game that pitted the Towson Tigers against the Oregon State Beavers.

Obama's brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is Oregon State's head coach.

Oregon won 66-46.

The crowd inside Towson's arena cheered as Obama and first lady Michelle Obama entered and shook fans' hands as they made their way to a pair of courtside seats.

Daughters Malia and Sasha sat in the first row of the bleachers. Also attending were Obama's mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan, a former professional basketball player and friend of Obama's from Chicago.

"Groundhog Day" actor Bill Murray, whose son, Luke, is an assistant coach at Towson, also attended and spent a few minutes chatting up the Obamas before play got under way.

At halftime, Obama was surrounded by the entire Towson football team, which was honored for winning the Colonial Athletic Association regular-season title.

Catching an Oregon State game has become a post-Thanksgiving tradition for the Obamas.

Last year, the Beavers came to Washington and defeated Howard. The year before that, Oregon State traveled east and scored a win against George Washington.
