NEW YORK - US President Barrack Obama is back to basketball, but this time, only as a spectator.
Obama, who received 12 stitches after a basketball match recently, came to cheer his brother-in-law.
With a slight cut still apparent on his lower lip, Obama’s focus was cheering for the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday, looking nearly healed from the rough game the day before.
His brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, is the coach at Oregon State, reports New York Daily News.
Michelle Obama, her mom and the Obamas’ nephew were dressed in Oregon State school colors - orange and black - while the President wore a black button-up shirt.
Education Secretary, Arne Duncan, a regular at the Obama hoops game, was also at the non-conference showdown - but he was more non-partisan, wearing a plain blue button-up.
And, the result was in Obama’s team’s favor, as the Oregon State Beavers ended up beating the Howard Bison 84-74. (ANI)
