Obamas to attend Oregon St.-Md. basketball game

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.
