Obama heading to see top college basketball teams

Obama heading to see top college basketball teams

President Barack Obama couldn't pass up the chance to see a college basketball game between two top 10 teams.
So on a snowy Saturday, Obama joined a sellout crowd to watch seventh-ranked Georgetown take on No. 8 Duke. Obama's personal assistant, Reggie Love, played basketball at Duke.
The president, who often plays in pickup games and watches his daughters' contests, also attended a college game on Nov. 28 not far from the White House. That matchup was between Oregon State and George Washington. Obama's brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is the Oregon State coach.
Duke and Georgetown are using their game to launch an initiative to raise money for children in refugee camps in the Darfur region of Sudan.
